- Our Work
Wealth is often transferred from one generation to the next, or accumulated through home ownership. But for many, particularly people of color, these modes of wealth accumulation are inaccessible. LISC’s financial stability programs build equity by connecting low- to moderate- income families with the financial and labor market mainstream.
FOCs provide employment and career counseling, one-on-one financial coaching, and help building credit, savings, and assets. They also connect clients with income supports such as food stamps, utilities assistance and affordable health insurance.
The Bridges to Career Opportunities program fills in critical education gaps that keep people from good jobs. Students improve their literacy and math skills in the context of the field they're training to enter, and earn the credentials needed to begin careers in growing fields.
Our financial stability programs achieve extraordinary outcomes that have been verified by independent reseach.
