Resident Services

About

ABCDC is committed to providing more than just high-quality housing; we offer support services for those who call ABCDC-owned affordable rental housing home. Our Resident Services programming supports parents and children alike who live in our housing to stabilize their tenancies, increase economic self-sufficiency, access new opportunities, and remove barriers which prevent individuals and families from being fully engaged in their community.

All Bright Community Center

In 2017, Allston Brighton CDC opened the All Bright Community Center at 1287B Commonwealth Ave to better serve families living in our properties. We’ve partnered with local organizations like Action for Boston Community Development and LEGIT.yoga to provide yoga classes, food pantries, financial coaching, senior coffee hours, and more.

Monthly Resident Newsletter

Every month, our Resident Services staff puts together a newsletter for everyone living in ABCDC’s properties. Check out this month’s newsletter for information about upcoming events and other updates.
