Please Excuse Our Mess

Our website is under construction. We will launch our newly designed website in the Spring of 2015. In the meantime, please excuse our mess.


We are one site of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the nation’s largest community development support organization. Our mission is to help neighborhood residents create healthy and sustainable places of choice and opportunity – good places to live, work, raise children and conduct business. We mobilize corporate, government, individual donor and philanthropic support and invest these resources into the projects, programs and initiatives that build on the assets and address the challenges of the neighborhoods in Washington, DC.
