Our Community

Providing affordable housing to South LA

South LA’s Vernon-Central Neighborhood

CRCD began in the Vernon-Central neighborhood of South Los Angeles with one contract: to provide graffiti abatement services in South LA for the City of Los Angeles. Since then, the organization has grown to become one of the leading African American-led community development corporations in Los Angeles.  

Today, CRCD expanded its services beyond the Vernon-Central neighborhood and includes a family of departments that support the community we serve with a full spectrum of whole-person care programs – Youth Workforce Development, Adult Workforce Development Housing and Support Services, and Real Estate. 

Since its founding in 2005, CRCD has been devoted to inspiring, educating, and empowering the historically disadvantaged youth and residents of South LA.
