*Housing Acquisition Fund Properties
As of early 2017, EBALDC developed and preserved over 2,200 affordable homes, and more than 300,000 square feet of space for nonprofit organizations and community serving businesses. We own and manage nearly 30 residential and commercial developments, ensuring their continued quality and long term affordability, and we provide on-site support and programming for our residents. Our commercial tenants include childcare and health centers, numerous nonprofit organizations, and a range of food purveyors, from a resident-owned market to some of Oakland’s most popular locally owned restaurants.
While EBALDC is known for our affordable housing complexes, we have continued to adapt and respond to the world around us. We are now keenly aware of the fact that community development is more than a bricks-and-mortar endeavor. Through our programs and services, we now serve more than 6,000 people annually, coordinating social services and social events at our buildings, providing financial education and counseling, youth and senior programming, free tax preparation and more. Additionally, our SPARC and Healthy Havenscourt Collaborative are our most ambitious community planning and engagement efforts to date, focused on convening residents, community and faith based organizations, businesses, public agencies, and healthcare providers around the shared vision of neighborhood health and wellbeing. These programs help to build Healthy Neighborhoods, which is at the heart of what guides our efforts today.
