Comprehensive Community Development is our strategy—a holistic approach that uses deep and abiding citizen engagement to address a spectrum of interconnected needs. Residents and leaders envision a better future; create a definitive plan to accomplish that vision; and recruit local agencies, organizations and institutions into a collaborative partnership that integrates programs and services to improve the quality of life within the community.
LISC Toledo knows that healthy communities are places that offer the resources and opportunities for residents to engage in building safe and healthy neighborhoods, learn, grow, build assets, and take part in the mainstream economy. As a strategy, Comprehensive Community Development is designed to help change the trajectory of disadvantaged neighborhoods. We do this together with our partners by investing in affordable housing, economic development, health, and financial stability in select neighborhoods.
