Review for Oakland Planning & Development Corporation, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Board Member & I have worked with OPDC on projects related to housing, community events and community planning .
