Each year, Fenway CDC improves the lives of over 2,500 adults and 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. Boston residents who come to Fenway CDC build job skills, gain financial literacy, and learn healthy habits.

Fenway CDC enriches the neighborhood by organizing the Fenway Porchfest music festival and numerous other community events. We work with organizations across Boston engaging citizens to advocate for improvements in housing policies that will protect families from eviction; create more funding for affordable housing; and increase the number of affordable units.

Fenway CDC’s Newest Affordable Housing Project

We are thrilled to share that Fenway CDC has acquired the 112-114 Queensberry Street parcel in the West Fens to develop as a 100% affordable housing project. The planned development will feature a six-story building including 24 units of permanently affordable housing.

We are excited to be developing multiple ground-up new projects in the course of five years after nearly two decades without such a project. The project represents another significant step in our mission to provide affordable housing in the Fenway neighborhood. We will keep you updated as we move the project forward and would like to thank all Fenway CDC donors for your support throughout the years.
