We help residents live healthier and happier.

We create and preserve homes for residents.

We help residents access education, jobs, training,
social services, and fresh healthy food.

We prevent residents from displacement and work with stakeholders
to improve the City’s housing and development policy.

OUR IMPACT:

Each year, Fenway CDC improves the lives of over 2,500 adults, children, and youth through 5,000 services and a wide range of community activities. We provide affordable housing, connect residents to social services, career-furthering education opportunities, employment, and fresh foods. Residents who come to Fenway CDC build job skills, gain financial literacy, and learn healthy habits.

Fenway CDC enriches the neighborhood by helping to organize the Fenway Porchfest music festival and family events for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fenway CDC works with organizations across Boston to train citizens to advocate for improve housing policies that will protect families from eviction; create more funding for affordable housing; and increase the number of affordable units.
