As the situation around COVID-19 continues to unfold, LISC San Diego will adjust our policies and practices appropriately. Following the guidance of our organization's leadership, along with instruction drawn from the Executive Order issued by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health: all LISC San Diego staff will be working remotely until further notice. Each staff member is accessible by phone and e-mail, please visit the Meet Our Staff page for more contact info.
We are grateful for your understanding and patience during these extraordinary circumstances.
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.

The fundamental role of LISC AmeriCorps members is to serve essential community needs. With the onslaught of the coronavirus epidemic, our members are adapting and devising creative new ways to help the rural and urban residents they work with handle the seismic social, economic and public health shocks of the crisis.
