In 1987, community activists and leaders founded ACDC in response to the need for affordable housing in the Chinatown neighborhood. Today, ACDC is a regional community builder and the leader in developing and preserving affordable housing in areas of Greater Boston where Asian Americans live, work and play.
ACDC provides culturally appropriate and locally sensitive programs that enable residents to improve their quality of life, and effectively engage in improving their neighborhoods. Our programs encourage sustainable, healthy living and leverage local community assets and resources to provide socio-economic stability. ACDC aims to preserve Boston’s Chinatown as a hub for culture and a continued gateway for new immigrants. Our housing developments and the complementary programming anchor people, culture, and community and lead place-making efforts to strengthen and build community.
