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.
