What is LISC?

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.
