The Organization
The East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) is one of the largest community development organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.  We opened our doors in 1975 with the development of an underutilized historic warehouse in Oakland’s Chinatown into the Asian Resource Center, a multi-service center housing nonprofit agencies, retail businesses, and medical facilities.  Since then, we have developed 1,918 affordable homes and 316,000 square feet of commercial space in Oakland and the East Bay, investing more than $190 million in the community.  Our properties include numerous Oakland landmarks, including Swan’s Marketplace, Preservation Park, and Hismen Hin-nu Terrace.EBALDC has long been committed to work that achieves true neighborhood change.  Along with building and managing residential and commercial properties, we provide a range of services for our residents and community members, including benefits assistance, youth and senior programming, and volunteer tax assistance.  Building on the success of these programs, EBALDC is one of the first community development organizations in the country to organize our work around the “social determinants of health,” which include food access, quality education, efficient public transit, a range of affordable housing options, job opportunities and financial stability, social supports, public safety, and a clean environment with safe, attractive recreational spaces.  By impacting these interconnected factors, we aim to ensure that the neighborhoods where we work are vibrant and healthy places to live, learn, work, and play.
