Coalition for Responsible Community Development

Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) is a youth-centered community development corporation serving South LA’s Vernon-Central neighborhood. CRCD provides housing, education, and jobs for low-income youth and adults, as well as economic development and business assistance. CRCD launched its first program a decade ago ― graffiti abatement ― which evolved into a business venture known as CRCD Enterprises. Today, CRCD Enterprises has three lines of business ― painting, facilities maintenance, and urban infrastructure ― that generate employment for South L.A. youth aged 18-24.
