Dr. Belinda Allen, executive director of West Angeles Community Development Corporation, is being honored as part of the Black History Month observance sponsored by U.S. Bank.

“Celebrating Black History Month is an opportunity for us to celebrate the leaders in our communities who we partner with to make a tangible difference,” said Greg Cunningham, vice president, diversity and inclusion for U.S. Bank.

The other honorees Jackie Taylor, founder and CEO of Black Ensemble Theater in Chicago; Dr. Eve M. Hall, president of the Milwaukee Urban League; and Linda Harris, senior vice president of the Urban League of Metro St. Louis.


“Through Community Possible, we’re proud to support the communities where we live, work and play – and these nonprofit organizations who make life better for all our neighbors,” Cunningham said.

The West Angeles Community Development Corporation helps West Angeles residents achieve their possible, noted Allen, who shared that the organization’s mission is to increase social and economic justice, demonstrate compassion and alleviate poverty. The CDC reaches more than 20,000 clients each year.

“I believe in giving back to the community where you live and where you work,” said Allen.

“From youth financial education, wealth building and leadership programs, to employment, small business assistance, homeownership and senior housing, West Angeles Community Development Corporation is committed to revitalizing the community so people of all ages can thrive,” said Bonnie Tseng, vice president and community development manager at U.S. Bank.

West Angeles CDC’s multimillion dollar, transit-oriented affordable housing development, was also recently financed by U.S. Bank.

“U.S. Bank has been a partner with us for over a decade,” Allen noted. “The partnership allows us to offer our services more efficiently and effectively, and on a broader scale.”
