ABOUT DAVIS STREET
Founded as a ministry of the First Christian Church in 1970, Davis Street Community Center (DSCC) became a 501(c)(3) in 1990. The Davis Street Community Center, Inc. has been led by Rose Padilla Johnson since 1991. It has grown from its origins as a food pantry to a licensed childcare center serving 24 children, a voucher subsidy childcare program for 40 children, and a thrift store. Today, it is the only multi-service family resource center in San Leandro. Serving the Eden area and its surrounding communities, Davis Streets services focus on those with the most need and least access.
Today Davis Street’s vision of a holistic model of delivering supportive services to the low-income community has come to fruition with 80 full/part-time employees and a budget of $17.1 million, Davis Street serves thousands of individuals each year. Davis Street FRC is governed by a 15-member volunteer board of directors. In the wake of dwindling government resources and fewer private gifts, Davis Street fights harder and leaner than ever to continue our work for those most in need!
