Financial Opportunity Centers

We've seeded five Financial Opportunity Centers (FOCs) in the Twin Cities to help residents increase their incomes and grow their assets. So far, more than 5,000 individuals have benefited from the FOCs' convenient bundled services and one-on-one coaching in financial literacy, credit and wealth building, and job readiness. We've now added a new emphasis on employment to the mix of services they offer--our Building Career Opportunities program.

In 2016, the Mapping a Road to Financial Wellbeing report showed that LISC's Financial Opportunity Centers are surpassing other programs in getting clients on the path to stability.

Listen to what these five centers accomplish in their own words.
