About Us

DITO Inc. is a 501c3 community development organization founded in 2013 and based in West Oak Lane of Philadelphia, PA. It began with a social worker native to West Oak Lane tired of seeing her neighborhood decline from drugs and poverty. What started as a personal venture to clear a 20-year vacant plot used for illicit activity, quickly blossomed into a holistic plan for communal restoration. Since DITO’s inception, it has continued to grow both in services and community. Today, DITO Inc. provides educational agriculture courses and organic produce to youth and families; from that once blighted plot. It also provides a weekly food bank coupled with wellness courses that has fed over 1000 families. Over the years DITO Inc. has built working partnerships with non-profits, universities, religious organizations and political figures to ensure urban communities remain properly serviced.
