Working families deserve the necessary support and opportunities to build wealth and advance their family’s financial position. Most, however, do not have access to the information and resources needed to build a financially secure household.
The Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) equips Latinos and other underserved Greater D.C. and Baltimore 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 build their long-term financial security by buying and staying in their homes, taking control of decisions affecting their apartment buildings, and starting or expanding their small businesses. The entire DC-MD-VA region is stronger when all families have the power to achieve financial independence and join with their neighbors to improve their communities.
