Madison Park Development Corporation of Boston
Our mission is: the physical, economic, social and cultural renaissance of the Lower Roxbury area of Boston. Formed in 1966, Madison Park Development Corporation was one of the country's first community-based, non-profit organizations to independently develop affordable housing for low- and moderate-income residents. MPDC has been hailed as a model of resident-led community development. MPDC has developed 875 units of housing, redeveloped vacant commercial buildings; created residents associations; trained over 130 former welfare recipients and unemployed individuals; promoted Roxbury arts, culture and trade; and mounted comprehensive youth activities programs.
