Sterling Land Company Community Involvment

Sterling Land Company plays an active part in supporting positive efforts in Oakland Community development. Sterling's team is actively involved with these community initiatives:

OAKLAND PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (OPDC)

OPDC builds a better Oakland through job placement services, neighborhood preservation and investment programs, resident volunteer efforts, youth services and community engagement.
