EANDC grew out of community organizing efforts that began in East Akron during the 1970s. The goal was to improve access to safe and affordable housing , and we are still working in that tradition today through the strategic redevelopment of properties in East Akron, and through our work addressing the problem of vacant land in the neighborhood.

We would not be where we are today without partners and sponsors like you. Thank you!
