Allston Brighton CDC builds a stronger, more stable community by representing and supporting the interests, engagement, and leadership of Allston Brighton’s diverse communities, institutions, individuals, and families of all incomes.
Rapidly rising housing costs disproportionately affect the neighborhood’s most vulnerable residents, creating housing instability and displacement of low- and moderate-income individuals from critical community assets like public transportation, jobs, health care, their families, and more. ABCDC strives to create a vibrant neighborhood where people of many incomes, races, and gender identities can live and work.
Our home buying program opens doors to homeownership and provides First-Time Homebuyer education and financial coaching for low-to-moderate income people, opening doors to individuals seeking to stabilize their family’s financial situations. The housing development program is focused on stable, affordable rental housing by creating and preserving housing throughout Allston Brighton, a neighborhood that’s been feeling the effects of high rents and limited homeownership opportunities. Our community action program opens doors to personal and political power for local residents by mobilizing and supporting new voices for community leadership. Our resident services program opens doors to stable and secure housing for the 505 households within ABCDC properties by providing high quality affordable rental housing and case management services.
