Community Partners

Communiuty Partners

LISC has developed strong working relationships with several local not-for-profit organizations. We are also working to incorporate our Building Sustainable Communities initiative into the work of our partners in two communities – the West Side and Buffalo’s Promise Neighborhood. Building Sustainable Communities requires a concentrated and comprehensive approach to investment in targeted neighborhoods, and engages multiple partners.

On the West Side the work of PUSH and the Massachusetts Avenue Project is being aided by HomeFront.

On the East Side Belmont Housing Resources is a partner with the Westminster Foundation.
