Fairmount Indigo CDC Collaborative

Dorchester Bay EDC is a member of the Fairmount Indigo Network and the Fairmount Indigo CDC Collaborative. The Collaborative — which includes partner organizations Codman Square NDC and Southwest Boston CDC —  serves the predominantly low- and moderate-income neighborhoods along the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line from Hyde Park to North Dorchester in Boston.

The Fairmount Indigo CDC Collaborative and its member CDCs have strong track records of building thriving and diverse neighborhoods — building new affordable and mixed-income housing, creating development opportunities, and developing avenues to foster resident and youth leadership. Together, we are helping to bring more reliable and affordable public transit options and new investments in housing, commercial development, and open space to benefit the residents living within the Fairmount Corridor.

Fairmount Indigo Job Referral Network

In August 2016, the Fairmount Indigo CDC Collaborative launched the Job Referral Network to address high unemployment along the Fairmount Indigo corridor by creating new pathways to good jobs. Member CDCs assist local residents in locating relevant job openings and provide interview support.

Job seekers along the Fairmount Corridor should contact the CDC in their area to begin the search process. Employers seeking qualified applicants should contact Dara Frederick, Business Employment Specialist.
