CICD connects the Haitian diaspora with multilingual housing resources and legal services.

Our advocacy has resulted in the translation of the Boston Housing Authority’s rental application forms into Haitian Creole. We continue to work with tenant advocacy groups to protect the rights of renters that lack knowledge of the city’s fair housing laws.
