Organization and role of the mlk-cdc

The MLK Health and Wellness Community Development Corporation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity, was created by concerned citizens and stakeholders to facilitate the revitalization of the MLK Medical Campus in South Los Angeles. The MLK-CDC board is comprised of highly regarded civic leaders and skilled professionals of Los Angeles who can call upon other highly respected individuals and organizations as technical advisers with expertise in real estate, public contracting, leasing, finance and construction management.

 

Funding Sources and campus projects

The Weingart Foundation, the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation and The California Endowment have contributed the necessary general operating funds to allow the MLK-CDC to act as a facilitator for the MLK Medical Campus.

The MLK-CDC has raised funds for the much needed remodeling of the 50 year old trailers that currently house the MLK Pediatric Clinic HUB.  Annually, the clinic serves nearly a quarter of LA County's (approximately 5,000) children and teens in foster care.  Additional funds are being raised for furniture and equipment essential personal needs such as clothing, hygiene products, school supplies, emergency food vouchers and MTA Tap cards.  The Clinic will move to the former hospital building when it is renovated and increase in size from the current 9,000 sq. ft. to 35,000 sq. ft. allowing for much needed increased foster care services to the community.
