WLCAC has built, owns and/or manages over 600 commercial properties, business ventures and housing units in South Central Los Angeles.

Proceeds from these operations are re-invested to create additional housing and commercial development projects, which in turn provide new jobs for local residents.

WLCAC provides low-income, subsidized, and assisted living housing to qualifying low to moderate income families and senior citizen applicants.
WLCAC is in end stages of construction on MudTown Farms, a one-of-a-kind public urban agricultural park and training center with an interactive network of farming, education, and recreational programs. This project sits on 2.5-acres in the heart of Watts, and it will serve as a center for health and wellness, addressing food security, positive health outcomes, and environmental stewardship. Slated to open this year in 2019, MudTown Farms will be a transformative community gathering space.

WLCAC is grateful to our partners with the City of Los Angeles, Proposition K Grant Program and the California State Parks Proposition 84 grant for helping us bring this vision to life.

At a 52-year old community center called the Watts Labor Community Action Committee (WLCAC), stories from early residents reveal what Watts was like when it was all farmland. The episode explores the founding of the organization though the efforts of an extraordinary man named Ted Watkins and the legacy his son carries on based on his father’s vision to offer healthy food choices for the many residents through an agricultural center and farm that would feed the community.
