The Allston Brighton CDC’s Community Engagement program is helping to build a stronger and more stable community by supporting community-identified and led-strategies that create and foster a healthy, diverse and stable neighborhood. We do this by engaging residents throughout the neighborhood living in, or outside, of the housing in our portfolio, growing a diverse voice that includes hundreds of community members in conversations that address the community impact of institutional expansion, transient populations, and the rise of investor absentee landlords.

Programs & Committees
Our community building and engagement work supports strategies – led and identified by community members – that foster a strong, stable neighborhood. We engage and support residents throughout Allston Brighton to build a voice that includes hundreds of community members, with diverse backgrounds and interests, in conversations about the impact of institutional expansion, a growing shortage of affordable rental and homeownership opportunities, and the rise of absentee and investor property owners.
Get involved through one of our three volunteer workgroups – the Affordable Housing Action Committee, Neighborhood Stabilization Action Committee, and Community Planning Committee – or our Leadership Development Academy, a multi-week leadership training opportunity for Allston Brighton residents.
