LISC—Local Initiatives Support Corporation—works with communities across the country to transform places and change people’s lives. At LISC San Antonio, we collaborate with residents and partners to develop skills, invest in neighborhoods and drive policy changes that foster shared prosperity.
For decades, Annie Donovan has led innovative efforts to spur economic opportunity and revitalize communities. Now, the former head of the CDFI Fund is bringing her considerable talent and experience to LISC, taking on the new role of chief operating officer to help drive strategies that support a broadly shared prosperity in urban and rural communities.
As chair of LISC San Antonio, Cisneros is passionate about helping bridge the affordable housing gap because it aligns with a housing first philosophy. "It treats housing as part of the solution," Cisneros said. "Let's get you in housing, let's get you warm, let's get you well, let's get you a good blanket and a bed where you can sleep for the night."
In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we are highlighting our 26-year partnership with Little Tokyo Service Center in Los Angeles. Since its founding in 1979, LTSC has been a stalwart anchor for residents of every background, providing social services, creating and safeguarding affordable housing, fueling small businesses and serving as a beacon of Japanese-American cultural heritage well beyond the city’s Little Tokyo neighborhood.
