Dinner, Silent Auction, Cash Bar, Awards, Slide Show and more…Join us to celebrate our accomplishments to date and to look forward to the next 15 years!
Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation works to sustain a thriving, economically diverse community in Hyde Park and Roslindale through a focus on affordable housing options, access to good transit, preservation of green spaces, and the development and empowerment of local leaders whose voices may not otherwise be heard.
Our programs include:
We organize around local issues, including the preservation of affordable housing.
The Hyde Park Green Team – our youth jobs and environmental stewardship program – where youth learn teamwork and build confidence.
The annual Boston Shines Day – community clean up at a local urban wild
We partner with other groups – the Menino Arts Center held a pop up local art gallery for a community event we organized around Transit Equity for the Fairmount Line.
The Residences at Fairmount Station will be the first affordable housing developed in Hyde Park in over 20 years. They’ll revitalize a downtown lot — and bring more consumers to local businesses!
We bring residents together to work on local issues…and have a good time!
The Hyde Park Green Team has been providing youth employment and environmental stewardship operating in partnership with the City of Boston since 2009.
Placemaking meets Transit Equity – taking signage into our own hands to connect riders to the transformed Fairmount/Indigo Line
The Annual Sherrin Woods Community Meeting – Hyde Park Green Team youth lead tours and develop public speaking skills by educating neighbors, local law enforcement, and family members about their work to preserve urban wilds.
