Our Mission is to invest in the process of building healthy neighborhoods by promoting affordable housing, desirable public spaces and resident prosperity and leadership.
Our Vision is to work towards a future in which Chelsea is a City of Opportunity, a city comprised of healthy neighborhoods where people feel welcome and connected to their community. A place where residents of all income levels can grow and prosper.
Supporting People: Our Resident Asset Building department provides financial literacy training and Individual Development Accounts to encourage responsible money management and to increase household wealth.
Engaging Community: Through our community building activities, we create strong connections among neighbors, foster a positive neighborhood identity and build social capital linking residents and community institutions to foster a vibrant sense of community life.
Building Housing: CND and our partners develop quality affordable apartments and homes for mixed- income households through the purchase of existing substandard properties and former industrial sites.
Revitalizing Neighborhoods: CND seeks to engage residents in determining neighborhood changes through neighborhood planning to transform under utilized commercial sites and problematic residential neighborhoods into healthy neighborhoods.
