After decades of investing in blighted communities across the country, Local Initiate Support Corporation (LISC) knows that healthy neighborhoods rest as much on whether residents can earn a decent wage and build financial security as they do on good housing, strong schools and vibrant businesses. 


As part of our comprehensive strategy—Building Sustainable Communities— Local Initiate Support Corporation (LISC) is tackling this pressing need through an expansive network of Financial Opportunity Centers (FOCs)in dozens of communities nationwide. FOCs help clients find and maintain good jobs, stick to realistic budgets, improve their credit and save for the future. And they are located in the same neighborhoods where LISC is investing in housing and health, reducing crime,strengthening schools and re-energizing commercial corridors.
