Success Stories


At the core of our work are the many residents whose lives are better because of the beautiful homes and vibrant communities built by our community development partners. LISC’s Success Stories present the residents’ perspective from communities across the state.

 

Old Saybrook's Ferry Crossing

"I sleep better, and have the freedom here to come and go as I please. I ride my bike everywhere and I’m a fisherman, so this is ideal for me. We don’t have enough senior housing in the state. I never thought I’d end up here, but I said a prayer when I got this opportunity. I’m very thankful."

"This 1828 farmhouse, only a quarter mile from the center of town, was in foreclosure. Its bones were still good, but it had been neglected. We worked with LISC to purchase it and to hire a consultant who helped us find funding, get zoning approvals, develop architectural plans and manage construction."
