About Us

The mission of the Lower East Side Coalition Housing Development, Inc. (LESCHD) is to improve and stabilize the quality of life for local residents by the development of new construction and the substantial rehabilitation of vacant housing stock to preserve affordable housing for individuals of low-to-moderate income. The organization is committed to providing professional, community-based not for profit management of new and rehabbed buildings in its portfolio.

Our catchment area is approximately 50 blocks in size and is bound on the north by 14th Street, on the south by Houston Street, on the west by Avenue A, and the eastern boundary is the East River.
