Phoenix LISC

Summary: Phoenix LISC (PDF)

Healthy communities offer safe opportunities for educational and recreational programs, particularly for kids. In Phoenix, LISC provided $10 million in New Markets Tax Credits to support new Boys and Girls Club branches throughout the metropolitan area. Each facility offers more than 25,000 square feet of safe, year-round, after-school and summer activities where kids can gain educational competencies and participate in a wide array of indoor and outdoor activities that help them develop positive friendships and lead active, healthy lifestyles. The Centers are typically equipped with a gym, teen center, game and art room, computer lab, outdoor field and a healthy food meal program. One of the branches is immediately adjacent to a LISC Sustainable Community neighborhood and integrates a LISC/NFL sports field that has also hosted an Arizona Cardinal’s mini football training camp for kids.
