What We Do

With residents and partners, LISC forges resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity across America – great places to live, work, visit, do business and raise families.


Strategies We Pursue

  • Equip talent in underinvested communities with the skills and credentials to compete successfully for quality income and wealth opportunities.
  • Invest in businesses, housing, and other community infrastructure to catalyze economic, health, safety and educational mobility for individuals and communities.
  • Strengthen existing alliances while building new collaborations to increase our impact on the progress of people and places.
  • Develop leadership and the capacity of partners to advance our work together
  • Drive local, regional, and national policy and system changes that foster broadly shared prosperity and well-being.

Over the last 40 years, LISC and its affiliates have invested approximately $20 billion in businesses, affordable housing, health, educational mobility, community and recreational facilities, public safety, employment, and other projects that help to revitalize and stabilize underinvested communities. Headquartered in New York City, LISC’s reach spans the country from East coast to West coast in 36 markets with offices extending from Rhode Island to San Francisco. Visit us at www.lisc.org


LISC believes that Rhode Island’s long-term success will be measured by the extent to which all individuals – regardless of income, race, or zip code – have access to safe, healthy, sustainable communities with housing and economic choices that put them on the path to financial security, health, and wellbeing.  We envision a region where residents are connected to their communities and can plan to stay there. A place where community residents build wealth through good jobs and entrepreneurship. A place where community residents drive action to improve their neighborhoods because they feel a sense of ownership and empowerment. Where neighborhoods have strong and responsive community organizations driven by residents’ needs and ideas.
