Since 1912, Girl Scouts has been helping girls in Connecticut build courage, confidence, and character while developing uncommon leadership skills that serve the common good. Through Girl Scouting, girls discover themselves as they explore their world, connect with others to understand the needs of their community, and take action to make the world a better place.

LISC and Wells Fargo have a long history of collaboration on work to expand housing, economic development, health, safety and jobs.

LISC has been selected by the Department of Housing and Community Development to serve as fund manager for the District’s new Housing Preservation Fund with the award of $5 million for LISC to invest. As the preservation fund manager, LISC will invest $20 million in ensuring that low income Washingtonians can remain a part of the District’s bright future.
A vigorous and unprecedented partnership between LISC and ProMedica, an Ohio-based integrated health system, is set to inject tens of millions of dollars to improve health outcomes and wellbeing in underinvested Toledo neighborhoods. The collaboration, which will serve as a national model, will fund opportunities for employment, income-building, education, community safety and affordable housing—all the social determinants that shape a person’s health. “When we connect [the] talent and resources [of the healthcare industry] to the expertise of community developers, we have an opportunity to drive changes that help people live better—literally adding years to their life,” said LISC CEO Maurice Jones. “That’s incredibly powerful.”
