Leanne Ryder, Assistant Program Officer at LA LISC and the Program Administrator for LA LISC's AmeriCorps program, discusses the program's structure and local goals.
For nearly 30 years, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation in Los Angeles has worked with local leaders to invest in housing, health, education, public safety and employment - all basic needs that must be tackled at once so that progress in one is not undermined by neglect in another.
LISC brings together key local players to take on pressing challenges and incubate new solutions. With them, we help develop smarter public policy. Our toolkit is extensive. It includes loans, grants, equity investments and on-the-ground experience in some of the neediest neighborhoods.
LISC equips struggling communities with the capital, strategy and know-how to become places where people can thrive. We help create good places to live, work, do business and raise children.
LISC is proud to share the news that our partnership with Union Bank and the MUFG Union Bank Foundation continues into 2016. Union Bank has awarded a series of grants to LISC to advance comprehensive community transformation in Los Angeles, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Although this new support is focused in California, Union Bank also bolsters Rural LISC and our work in Chicago, Houston, and New York City. LISC is grateful for the sustained commitment of Union Bank and the MUFG Union Bank Foundation, important partners in our work for more than 20 years.
The Los Angeles Local Initiatives Support Corporation seeks a professional to fill the position of Community Development Officer - Housing & Economic Development. This position reports to the Executive Director.
