We are LISC—the Local Initiatives Support Corporation. It may be a mouthful, but our name does, in fact, say it all. We are a national organization with a grassroots focus.
LISC San Diego is one of 31 local LISC sites throughout the country, and is dedicated to helping community residents transform disinvested San Diego neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity - good places to work, do business, and raise children. Learn more.
LISC has invested deeply in the health and wellbeing of people in the places where we work for 40 years. But we’re upping the ante. President and CEO Maurice Jones calls partners to join us in upending health disparities through tailored investments in communities, and designing a plan to assess the health outcomes of our broad work in economic development, housing, safety and financial stability.
There are few more important issues facing San Diego than its systemic issues with the creation of affordable housing.
When Maria Angelica Aparicio first joined AmeriCorps four years ago, she was assigned as a financial coach to North County Lifeline (NCL), a nonprofit human services agency with sites in Vista and Oceanside. She’s now in her second stint with LISC-supported AmeriCorps, this time serving NCL as its financial counselor.
