Our Community Development Clients
We have sought to support the transformation of inner city neighborhoods into strong, diverse and vibrant urban communities. We have done this by strengthening CDC’s and dozens of other nonprofits within the New York region and throughout the Eastern United States. Primarily, these organizations are engaged in developing affordable housing, managing transitional housing, orchestrating community economic development projects, and pursuing myriad other community revitalization strategies.
Acacia Network can look back to 1969 to see its growth from a small local non-profit into one of the country’s largest CDCs serving the Hispanic community.
Restoration has been an anchor institution in Central Brooklyn for more than 50 years. Building on this legacy, Restoration’s board recently embarked on an inclusive strategic planning process. The process and plan were designed to guide the organization’s work through and beyond the next five years.
Children’s Aid (CA) has served New York’s families, children and teens in high-need neighborhoods for nearly 170 years. Its innovative work as a “powerhouse of solutions” has made it one of the largest, most influential, and successful child welfare organizations in the country. Public acclaim for its work remains unabated. In 2017, Children’s Aid was recognized – twice – for its impact: the prestigious Robin Hood Heroes Award and a Nonprofit Excellence Award (Gold Medal) from New York Community Trust.
