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 organizing the Fenway Porchfest music festival and community events. Fenway CDC works with organizations across Boston to engage citizens to advocate improvements in housing policies that will protect families from eviction; create more funding for affordable housing; and increase the number of affordable units.
