Comprehensive Community Development


Embedded in LISC’s founding, and strengthened over the last two decades, we are committed to comprehensive community planning. This planning process is essential to building the local capacity to effectively connect to the right resources to achieve fundamental change and long-lasting results in our communities.

LISC Chicago’s comprehensive community development efforts center on:

  • Quality-of-Life planning
  • Housing development
  • Youth programming
  • Creative placemaking
