Lang in the Community

Lang Cares Foundation 

In January 2022, Lang Development Group created its own philanthropic arm, the Lang Cares Foundation. The foundation aims to help organizations, individuals, and families in the local community through scholarship programs, community drives, charity events, among other activities.

Lang Cares Foundation provides assistance to local organizations in an effort to positively contribute to the community where our company conducts most of its business.

Lang Development Group has been a mainstay in Newark for over 20 years and annually gives to numerous organizations including the DFRC-Blue Gold, Food Bank of Delaware, SL24, Newark Charter School, Delaware Restaurant Association, Rotary Club of Newark, UDance, Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Company, Water is Life, Special Olympics, Blood Bank of Delaware, Fraternal Order of Police, Christiana Care, Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, and many others.

Lang Development Group continues its charitable outreach and expands upon these measures through our creation of the Lang Cares Foundation. So far, Lang Cares has created a scholarship program at Newark Charter School, partnered with Wilmington Head Start for a summer camp on Centerville Road, and donated to numerous local organizations including SL24: UnLocke the Light, Newark PAL, Chapel Street Players, and Delaware Dance Company, among others.

Lang Cares Foundation was created by Jeff and Karyn Lang along with the commitment and help from their family members and business partners.

Newark Rentals & Student Housing

Lang Development Group appreciates our loyal tenants. Being located in the heart of Newark, we take pride in providing rentals & student housing near UD for students and Newark residents. We hold a Leasing Day event every October to start off the leasing season. We like to support our student tenants by being a part of many UD organizations on campus. We support UDance, many varsity and club sports teams and many greek organizations. Many of our interns and employees are current students or UD alumni. To show our appreciation, we host an annual Lang Development Tenant Appreciation party, where we invite all of our tenants to celebrate a year of living at Lang. We want our tenants to know they are part of the Lang Family for life and invite them to visit us when they return to Newark after graduation.

Lang Development Group is proud to house many popular businesses in downtown Newark, such as Taverna, Home Grown, Drip Cafe, Buffalo Wild Wings, The Ski Bum, Roots and El Diablo to name a few. We also support our commercial tenants as well by encouraging their use by our residential tenants and sponsoring events that highlight them such as Restaurant Week and the Taste of Newark.
