- What We Do
PVJOBS is a nonprofit organization that was formed in 1998 with a mission to place at-risk and disadvantaged youth, adults and veterans into career-track employment in construction and other industries. LISC’s line of credit allows PVJOBS to pay contract expenses and serve returning citizen clients, rather than dipping into their cash on hand and potentially hindering their ability to act as a social service.
For our 10th Changemakers LA episode, we explore the work we are doing to address the skills gap in low income communities through our Bridges to Career Opportunities (BCO) program.
In addition to being the leading service provider for LGBT people in LA, the Center also provides affordable housing to homeless youth and seniors.
LA LISC is proud to have a longstanding relationship with California Bank & Trust, one that helps us rebuild our region’s struggling neighborhoods together. We appreciate your leadership on our Local Advisory Committee and look forward to working successfully to create vibrant, diverse, and healthy communities that improve the quality of life for Los Angeles families.

"I am motivated by many of the people I grew up with in my immigrant, working class community. Their resourcefulness and resiliency, while facing many difficult challenges, always provides me with the perspective to keep moving forward, regardless of what obstacles I may face." ~ Daniel Rodriguez, Portfolio Management Officer in the Community Development Banking Group with Bank of America Merrill Lynch and LA LISC LAC Member

Long Beach is blazing the trail of a new way to support its small business owners and keep their businesses rooted in communities into the next generation.
