LISC National
What We Do

Health


LISC’s approach to improving health in underserved places is holistic: we promote affordable, green housing, safety, good education, job opportunities and financial stability—all of which factor into the health and wellbeing of a community. But we also target our work to shore up three fundamental resources every neighborhood needs to keep residents well: easy access to pri­mary health care, affordable, nutritious food and safe places to exercise.

Bay Area LISC's Healthy Richmond Initiative, local economic development strategies, and NFL Grassroots partnership all work in conjunction to expand access to healthcare, promote local restaurants and grocery stores, and to expand safe community space for sports and recreation.
