1 Citywide. Neighborhood Deep.

2 LISC who? LISC Chicago. We re a community development institution with a simple goal: Make Chicago a stronger city. 1

3 We connect neighborhoods to the resources they need to become stronger and healthier. Hoops in the Hood, North Lawndale 2 3

4 We support local initiatives. Our reach is citywide. We bring leaders together through training programs, peer learning, community planning and our annual Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards (CNDA). We provide loans and grants across the city to generate new ideas, test new models and leverage new investment. But we re also neighborhood deep. We have spent decades working with community-based partners in more than 30 low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, places where Chicago s future will be determined. Our New Communities Program (NCP) set new standards in the field of community development. Over 10 years, it supported quality-of-life planning in 16 neighborhoods, and leveraged more than $600 million as those plans were implemented. It brought tangible, visible improvements to many neighborhoods. To expand our impact, we ve opened the door to new neighborhoods. Today, we use the NCP approach in everything we do. 4 Right: Middle school student in Elev8 program, Chicago Lawn 5

5 It takes time, money and talent. Organizing workshop, Pilsen AND LISC DELIVERS. HERE S HOW

6 In 2003, residents and leaders developing the Quad Communities quality-of-life plan identified the Cottage Grove corridor as a critical target for revitalization. WE INVEST IN NEIGHBORHOODS. Over the long haul. Boarded storefronts and liquor store before demolition for construction of Shops & Lofts at 47. Side street, Grand Boulevard 8 9

7 In 2014, Quad Communities Development Corporation (QCDC) and its partners cut the ribbon on Shops & Lofts at 47 (below), a $50 million deal, which includes a Walmart and other retailers plus 96 mixed-income apartment units. The project is creating 100 new jobs. In the following years, LISC invested $14.3 million in grants and loans to improve the Quad Communities. Cleanslate maintenance crew, Quad Communities Shops & Lofts won the Outstanding For-Profit Neighborhood Real Estate Project Award at the 2015 Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards. Accepting the award were, from left, Skilken Development Co. s Frank Petruziello, QCDC s Bernita Johnson- Gabriel and Troy Enterprises Adam Troy. Now LISC is building retail-development skills across Chicago through its Business District Leadership program. Above, a training in Wicker Park

8 Because jobs aren t enough to lift families out of poverty, community partners worked with LISC Chicago to build our Centers for Working Families network, which first launched in 2006 on the West Side. WE WORK ACROSS MULTIPLE NEIGHBORHOODS. For greater impact. The Centers provide career development, financial coaching, digital-skills training, credit building, and income supports. When clients take advantage of two or more services, they show greater increases in net worth and credit scores. 12 Financial Coaching, Woodlawn 13

9 The Centers have been so successful that the model was implemented across the National LISC network as Financial Opportunity Centers (FOC). Now there are 76 FOCs nationwide, which have received strong support from the federal government s Social Innovation Fund. In 2014, outreach workers from the Network and other neighborhood partners spread the word about health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. They reached 27,000 people and enrolled more than 4,400. Today our 15 Centers serve more than 13,000 people annually, helping them become financially stronger. More work is growing on this foundation: Trainings in digital skills were scaled up across the Network in 2014, providing more than 2,000 clients with the tools they need to get higher-paying jobs. A new partnership with City Colleges of Chicago launched in 2015, bringing Centers to Truman and Olive-Harvey Colleges, with a focus on helping students gain financial strength. 14 Training in digital skills, Pilsen (above); outreach for Affordable Care Act, North Lawndale (right). 15

10 We invest in people. And the organizations they lead. Building healthier neighborhoods requires local leadership, so LISC is always scouting for potential in the neighborhoods it serves. As strong individuals and organizations are identified, LISC provides technical assistance, grants and other support to help those leaders engage their neighborhoods more. We help partners collect and analyze data. We support planning processes that bring people and organizations together to develop shared strategies. And we put small amounts of money to work to test ideas, build up neighborhood organizations, and create tangible, visible improvements. Business development training, West Town; Community health planning, South Chicago 16 17

11 We get things done. We aren t finished yet. Youth in community garden, South Chicago 18 19

12 LISC and its partners are busy implementing existing plans, creating new ones and developing innovative solutions to urban problems. Health Care: Stakeholders in Chicago Lawn, Little Village and South Chicago undertook health planning in 2015 to better connect residents to health services and to support healthier, more active lifestyles. Neighborhood Development: Neighborhood groups on the Near North Side have released a new quality-of-life plan focused on building cross-cultural ties in the mixed-income neighborhood emerging on the former site of Cabrini- Green public housing. Crime: Sophisticated violence prevention strategies are being refined and expanded in Little Village. To better support at-risk youth in fifth through eighth grades, a dozen community partners are using data and coordinating services, ranging from boxing and recreation programs to mental health counseling and services to parents. Stronger connections to local schools are in the works. Planning: Residents and leaders in Belmont Cragin have begun a quality-oflife planning process. To help more neighborhoods, LISC is launching a boot camp training series called Chicago Plans. The program will help neighborhoods identify goals, implement strategies and attract new resources. 20 Left: Anti-violence march, Little Village Above: One-on-one conversation, Pilsen 21
