Why LISC


We are on the ground
LISC is in more places than any other community development organization. We have staff, expertise and relationships in 31 local offices.

We listen
LISC engages local leaders and neighbors to plan, set goals and measure progress. We bring local issues to state and national policy leaders.

We innovate
LISC tests ground-breaking ideas locally and adapts them nationally for a diverse array of locations, from the Mississippi Delta to Twin Cities to the Bay Area to Jacksonville.

We leverage
LISC invests in disinvested neighborhoods for maximum impact. Every dollar we invest attracts another $12 in private capital. 

We see the big picture
LISC’s approach is comprehensive. We work on housing, businesses, jobs, education, health, and safety in the same place at the same time.

We persevere
Markets go up and down, political winds shift, fads come and go. But LISC stays the course. 

WE HAVE AN IMPACT
Our communities are better places to live, more people have jobs and incomes rise. See our results.
