exterior of the newly opened Southeast Los Angeles BusinessSource Center
Through the leadership and support of Los Angeles City Councilman Curren Price (representing Council District 9), the Southeast Los Angeles BusinessSource Center (BSC) recently opened its doors to provide one-on-one assistance to small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs in the Southeast LA area.

Located on the Historic Central Avenue Business Corridor, the Southeast LA BSC’s mission is to provide an array of services to new and existing business owners. These services are geared toward strengthening the local economy through planning, access to capital, small business stabilization, and supporting the resiliency of the Southeast LA community.

The Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), a non-profit organization founded in 2005, will operate the Southeast LA BSC. The center’s mission is to expand entrepreneurial and small business services throughout Council District 9 and parts of Council District 14. CRCD also oversees EWDD's Vernon Central WorkSource Center and the South LA YouthSource Center.
