LISC National

What We Do

LISC is a national organization with a local focus, rooted in the belief that neighborhood leaders and organizations best understand the assets and needs of their communities.  

In order to create a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable District of Columbia, we support our communities in three main ways. We provide financial and human capital to build the capacity of our partners and improve neighborhoods. We use our resources to invest in affordable housing and neighborhood assets to improve social, economic, and physical health. We amplify the voices of disenfranchised communities and advocate with them for policy solutions and resources.
