East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation is a non-profit community development organization with over 40 years of experience in building healthy, vibrant and safe neighborhoods in Oakland and East Bay. We address the specific needs of individual neighborhoods by connecting the essential elements of health and wellbeing through our Healthy Neighborhoods Approach.
We understand that community development is more than a bricks-and-mortar endeavor. Our Neighborhood and Economic Development programs serve 4,000 people annually, through comprehensive services for low-income families and individuals in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
EBALDC forges thoughtful partnerships across industries in Oakland to address specific social conditions unique to each neighborhood. Our rich knowledge of Oakland enables us to identify and establish the right partnerships across different industries to address each community’s needs. By aligning resources and goals, we leverage the expertise of each partner to collectively make an impact on the health and wellbeing of residents in under-resourced neighborhoods.
EBALDC develops affordable housing, commercial and mixed-use, mixed-income projects in Oakland and across other cities in the East Bay, including Emeryville, Richmond and The City of San Pablo. In addition to building affordable housing for diverse, mixed-income communities, we also acquire existing multifamily properties in Oakland and stabilize the rents for current residents.
EBALDC is dedicated to providing low-income individuals and families within our properties and the greater community with services and education to generate income and wealth building opportunities. Our deep knowledge of Oakland also enables us to establish thoughtful partnerships and connect residents to the appropriate resources they need. Providing critical social services, community engagement opportunities, and promoting financial prosperity is part of EBALDC’s vision to address the social conditions impacting residents’ health and wellbeing in our target neighborhoods.
A healthy neighborhood allows residents to live, work, shop and play within their local community. The East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) is committed to developing the neighborhood by providing affordable commercial spaces as homes for community serving nonprofit organizations, retail businesses and service providers that hire from and serve local residents.
