Equipping Latinos And Other DC And Baltimore Metro Area Residents With Skills And Financial Tools To Create A Better Future For Their Families And Communities

About Us

Working families deserve to live in affordable homes and own successful small businesses -- but too many are unable to turn these dreams into reality.

The Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) equips Latinos and other D.C.-area residents with the skills and financial tools to create a better future for their families and communities.

Participants in our programs learn how to buy and stay in their homes, take control of decisions affecting their apartment buildings, and start or expand small businesses.

The entire D.C. area is stronger when all families have the power to achieve financial independence and join with their neighbors to improve their quality of life.
