OAKLAND PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION Reviews
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.
