The East Lake Foundation


Established in 1995, the Foundation turned one of the nation’s most violent public housing projects into a national model for community redevelopment. East Lake has evolved from being a great example of community redevelopment into being a great neighborhood in its own right. By working with residents and expert public and private partners, the Foundation now provides comprehensive programs and facilities that attract people of all ages and incomes seeking a sense of community.
