The mission of L.I.S.A., Inc. is:
To provide a safe, supportive, empowering environment for youth and families. Our programs and services are directed to help youth develop healthy interpersonal relationships, acquire academic achievement, manage social and cultural interactions, facilitate the exploration of spirituality, and teach independent living skills.
Thank you to NAUGATUCK SAVINGS BANK FOUNDATION for providing our Community-Based Life Skills Program with a $5,000 grant!
These funds will assist us in better preparing youth in foster care in the Waterbury area for college entry and employment. We provide our students with quality clothing for college and job interviews; fees for SAT preparation classes, SAT testing, and college applications fees. We also provide college campus tours; purchase books; and provide for students’ basic needs.
Thank you for your generosity and commitment to helping us better prepare young students for life after high school! We can’t wait to share with you the achievements of these young people participating in our Community-Based Life Skills Program.
