What We Do

Financial Stability 


LISC knows that healthy, sustainable communities are made up of people who have living wage jobs and feel confident about their economic futures. 

To get there, residents need the skills to advance along the path of employment and manage their money well. That's why we invest in helping people tackle all the facets of financial life - earning a steady paycheck, budgeting, building good credit and saving for education and retirement.

The LISC network of Financial Opportunity Centers (FOCs) includes over 80 centers in 30 cities. There are currently two Los Angeles FOCs that launched in September 2015 that are operated by Coalition for Responsible Community Development and Youth Policy Institute. 

Financial Opportunity Centers intentionally integrate 3 services: 

  • Employment Placement: one-on-one employment counseling, job readiness/job placement, access to education/training
  • Income Supports: food stamps, housing & energy subsidies, Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) 
  • Financial Coaching: pull/review credit report, establish budget & balances, connect to mainstream financial products
