Jacksonville LISC

Summary: Jacksonville LISC (PDF)

LISC has been supporting revitalization work in Jacksonville for 11 years, integrating efforts to develop affordable homes with those to build safe space for families to work and play and to live healthier lives. That effort requires a wide range of creative partnerships and the collaboration of many stakeholders. Together, they are the foundation of LISC’s Building Sustainable Communities approach. In 2009, for example, Jacksonville LISC helped support low-income housing being developed by several community development corporations, complemented that with playground space thanks to a partnership with KaBoom, and worked with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Police Athletic League to redevelop a decaying neighborhood football field. As illustrated in Jacksonville, comprehensive community development requires reaching out to traditional and nontraditional partners at local, regional and national levels to improve overall quality of life.
