About Us

Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association (DNDA) is a non‐profit organization devoted to social,  racial and environmental justice. We are dedicated to preserving and increasing affordable housing for a range of incomes, enhancing the natural environment, and providing such vital resources as arts and cultural opportunities, education, youth programs and access to healthy food for our neighbors. Our programs for affordable housing and wetlands restoration have become models for other communities. 

We rely on donor support to help fund the programs that build and sustain a dynamic Delridge community.
