Urban Edge

Urban Edge is one of the largest not-for-profit community development corporations (CDCs) in Massachusetts. We are located where Boston’s Latin Quarter meets its historic African-American neighborhood, at the crossroads of Jamaica Plain and Roxbury, in Jackson Square. We aim to foster diverse urban neighborhoods of choice populated by resilient families and sustained by dynamic webs of community relationships. To achieve this goal: we build quality affordable housing for low and moderate income households; we advise hardworking families on homeownership, financial education, taxes, and student loans; and we organize neighbors to become leaders of community change.
