Our story is simple – Compassion Corps is a non-profit organization dedicated to reaching people who are impoverished, destitute, or otherwise in need because of injustice(s) in our world.
Our inspiration can be found in the book of Proverbs 31: 8-9. It says, “Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.” (ESV) We fulfill our mission through our deep, personal commitment to Christ, our selfless service to those in need, and through the development of:
Fairhaven Food Pantry
Urban Restoration Projects
Outreach to the Homeless and Prostitutes
Compassion Corps’ vision is a call to a co-operative effort. We seek to work hand-in-hand with individuals, churches, and other like-minded organizations to fully fund and complete the work outlined above.

An article in Fortune highlights a $200 million investment from JPMorgan Chase to support small business and local community development funds. The funding has helped LISC Detroit, the Entrepreneurs of Color Fund (EOCF) and the Detroit Housing Fund create economic opportunities for thousands of Detroit residents. LISC senior vice president Tahirih Ziegler is quoted on the imperative of investing in affordable housing to protect against displacement in Detroit’s vulnerable communities.
Since its founding in 2004, the New Markets Support Company has managed LISC's federal New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation—currently the largest in the country at $1.2 billion. Over the years, the affiliate has expanded and diversified its offerings to mission-driven investors, and now has a new name to reflect that growth and impact.
Recent research highlights the importance and needs of nonprofit community development organizations. LISC’s Mark Kudlowitz examines how this data informs our work and the need for additional resources to support these groups’ abilities to help communities across the country.
