Welcome to the University District Community Development Association, dedicated to serving the residents of Buffalo’s Northeast neighborhoods. You might know us as:
The University District Community Development Association (UDCDA) is a full service agency offering a wide array of youth, teen, and senior service programs to residents out of the Gloria J. Parks Community Center located at 3242 Main Street while also spearheading community and housing development projects throughout Buffalo’s Northeast from its offices located at 995 Kensington Avenue.
We work with residents, block clubs, community nonprofits, educational institutions, and local government to invest resources in the people and places that matter most to our community.
ONGOING COMMUNITY FUNDRAISERS
Your donation will help us invest in the people and places that matter most!
The University District Community Development Association has two online fundraising campaigns that you can contribute to to make a difference in your community. Your donation will be reinvested back into the community through projects and programs sponsored by the UDCDA. You can help transform the life of a teen girl or help transform a vacant, blighted building on Bailey Avenue.
- Food For Thought: An innovative program teaching teen girls in Buffalo the importance of nutrition, self-esteem, and leadership.
- Bailey Fights Blight: A project using public art and community engagement to fight blight and spur investment on Bailey Avenue.
