LISC Detroit continues to support Detroit communities and neighborhoods during this unprecedented time. As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, LISC is taking action to ensure that we continue to support the people and places where we work. Visit our national website to learn more about the LISC COVID-19 response.
Our work to build stronger, more sustainable communities is guided by a larger vision of community development. Since 1990, we have invested more than $200 million in Detroit's neighborhoods to create good places to live, do business, and play. The key to our success has been our expanded vision of community development.
The projects we invest in are creating jobs, making communities safer, providing new educational opportunities, and helping families enter the economic mainstream of American life. They are creating new hope in neighborhoods where hope and opportunities have been in short supply for far too long.
