Action for Boston Community Development, Inc., was incorporated in 1962. It's original mandate, which holds true to this day, is to promote self-help for people and neighborhoods. Today, as the largest non-profit human services agency in New England, assisting more than 100,000 low-income individuals and families annually, ABCD continues to implement this philosophy of self-help through a decentralized, neighborhood based system that provides innovative, practical, and timely programs and services emphasizing education and job-training at all levels, providing early child care and education, and developing problem-solving skills for people and neighborhoods.
