Why Invest in SCC?

The changes to Somerville will only accelerate with 18 million square feet of new development slated, 30,000 new jobs projected and six new train stops arriving in the City in the next 10 to 20 years.The need to preserve diversity and affordability in our community has never been greater. And SCC’s members, board and staff are on the front lines of this effort to ensure development without displacement.

Through a unique mix of programs and services, SCC helps residents find jobs and advance careers, tackle debt and improve their financial circumstances, and access affordable housing in order to remain in the City they and we love. In addition, we help to organize and empower residents to influence policies locally and at the state level that contribute to Somerville remaining a place that is truly for everyone.

Preserving, Enhancing What Is Best 

To preserve and enhance the economic, racial and ethnic diversity of our population, especially in the eastern half of Somerville, SCC:

  • Builds and preserves housing that is affordable to working families and vulnerable individuals.
  • Leads community organizing and planning efforts to put strong policies in place and supports development that benefits all segments of our population.
  • Provides financial and asset-building education and services that help people become financially empowered and secure.

Serving All Residents

  • Tenants and owners of affordable homes we have built.
  • Participants in community organizing and planning efforts aimed at preserving what's good in Somerville and improving those things that need to change.
