Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation

Formed in 2001 by concerned residents, Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation aims to build and sustain a thriving, economically and racially diverse community in Hyde Park and Roslindale by preventing displacement, developing and preserving affordable housing, strengthening neighborhood commercial areas, fostering accessible transit and green space, and nurturing local leadership.  The CDC is currently developing the first new affordable housing project for families in Hyde Park in nearly 25 years, which will include 27 sustainably designed rental apartments, green space, an outdoor play area, and a community room.  To provide area youth with job skills and training while promoting environmental stewardship, the CDC established its Green Team program which has engaged over 125 youth since 2009.
