Bay Area LISC

Summary: Bay Area LISC (PDF)

In 2009, Bay Area LISC helped transform neighborhoods and the region. We put into action our theory of change, building the capacity of nonprofits, residents and community stakeholders to create good places to live, work, do business and raise families. Our field-building and place-based work culminates in our Neighbors Excelling Together (NExT) program. Through NExT, we are rallying local resources and creating partnerships that answer pressing needs for affordable housing, economic revitalization, high-quality education, healthy environments and improved financial literacy—all of which Bay Area LISC has been promoting for nearly three decades. Our NExT neighborhoods are Chinatown and Excelsior in San Francisco and in the East Bay, Nystrom in Richmond and San Antonio in Oakland. In 2009, 500 residents and stakeholders from these communities convened to identify priority issues and develop early action projects. NExT builds on our long local history of innovation and impact to help drive a more holistic approach to significant, sustainable change.
