Make an Impact

We’re focused on developing programs to help individuals acquire the skills and training needed to obtain higher paying jobs and affordable homes. In this way, we are able to help the Caribbean Diaspora assimilate into American culture and improve their quality of life.

2015 Highlights

●        We gave over 80 individuals and families free bilingual counseling and education on how to find a housing voucher, retain housing, and avoid homelessness.

●        Lead the translation of the Boston Housing Authority’s application forms into Haitian Creole.

●        Sponsored a two-month summer internship program for local high school students interested in community development.

●        Over 100 people attended our first annual Caribbean Affair, an arts and community-building event that included discussion about the difficulties faced by the Boston Caribbean community.
