Community Human Services has been partnering with OPDC to provide housing to folks in need for ten years. I became a board member because of that incredible service partnership.
I think OPDC is a perfect example of how Community Development Corporations should be working in neighborhoods. The organization understands the critical interplay of housing, community coalitions and service provision. I regularly work with service providers that have no relationship with their CDC and in some cases talk about an environment of conflict with them. Oakland is lucky to have a visionary CDC that values partnership.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Engaging those who live, work and play in sustaining a vibrant Oakland neighborhood
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase their budget so they could implement more facade improvement projects and promote more university housing.
Thanks for this review. We truly value the strong partnership we have with Community Human Services!
