Mission: EBALDC is a community development corporation that develops affordable housing and community facilities with integrated services focused on tenants and neighborhood residents, with emphasis on Asian & Pacific Islanders communities and the diverse low income populations of the East Bay. EBALDC's development projects seek to meet the various and often-complex needs of low-income communities of color. Most of these communities are struggling with poverty, high housing costs relative to income, high rates of unemployment, overcrowding and single parent families. EBALDC compliments its housing development with programs that bring neighborhood revitalization and asset development to the communities in which we work.
Programs: Besides building safe, decent, affordable housing for very low to moderate income families, individuals, and seniors, EBALDC also offers community and economic development programs that create a more comprehensive family-stabilizing strategy. EBALDC has grown to pursue its mission through the coordinated efforts of its Real Estate Development, Property Management and Neighborhood and Economic Development Departments. The organization's work includes economic development for individuals, families and neighborhoods through our Family Economic Success programs inlcuding Individual Development Account (IDA) programs, and Community Planning and Organizing. Family Economic Success actively works to assist adults and youth in building individual money management skills through financial education and asset building to invest in education, a business or homeownership. Community Planning and Organizing seeks to develop strategies for bridging gaps in local supportive Service Delivery Systems for EBALDC residents and for EBALDC target and impacted communities.
