LISC takes a comprehensive approach to building sustainable communities. Our five-part strategy includes:

Stimulating economic activity

Communities need vibrant local economies and business around them for retails services and jobs.

Building the physical environment

New construction and preservation efforts eliminate blighted properties and create quality, affordable spaces that root families and businesses.

Increasing family income and wealth

Good jobs and financial self-reliance are critical to long-term prosperity.

Financial Opportunity Centers

Improving access to quality education

Education prepares children for their roles as future leaders in their communities – a necessity for long-term sustainability.

Fostering safe and healthy environments

Quality healthcare and community safety are vital to creating neighborhoods of choice.
