A Message from LISC About COVID-19

Along with much of the world, we are closely monitoring the rapidly unfolding news of the COVID-19 pandemic. As ever, we are committed to meeting the needs of our partners and the communities we serve, and to supporting the wellbeing of our employees and the people and places where we live and work.

Here are some of the things we are doing to respond to this unprecedented situation.

Amid mounting concerns around the spread of COVID-19 or coronavirus, LISC is taking actions to ensure that we can continue to support the people and places where we work. We will do so while protecting the health of our LISC team and contributing our utmost to help slow the spread of the virus across America.

This pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for the entire country and the world, but especially for vulnerable people, organizations and businesses in our communities. In times of crisis, it is more important than ever that we stay well informed, connected and support each other. Locally and nationally, we are working with policymakers, partners and funders to determine the best ways to provide that support. We will update you with more details as those efforts move forward.
