About Us

Welcome to Dorchester Bay!

Dorchester Bay EDC was founded in 1979 by local civic associations to address the problems of economic disinvestment, unemployment, crime, community tensions and the shortage of quality affordable housing undermining Boston’s Dorchester neighborhoods.

Today, with both economic growth and income inequality on the rise, many of these problems still remain, even as we are faced with new challenges such as gentrification and displacement.

We believe our work is more urgent and our mission more relevant than ever before. Please browse our website and learn more about us, our areas of focus and the ways in which you can help us to support strong people building stronger, more secure and safer neighborhoods.
