Boston Community Capital Inc
About Boston Community Capital:
We are a national nonprofit organization dedicated to building healthy communities where low-income people live and work. Since 1985, BCC has invested over $1.4 billion in projects that provide affordable housing, good jobs, and new opportunities in low-income communities, connecting these neighborhoods to the mainstream economy. BCC has leveraged over $7 billion in public and private investment in underserved communities nationwide. Through several distinct business lines BCC reinvigorates communities in many ways, such renovating commercial real estate in distressed neighborhoods, introducing solar power to help contain energy costs for low-income families, providing financing for home owners facing foreclosure, and financing affordable housing, community health centers as well facilities that house child care, youth programs, charter schools and other organizations that provide essential social services.
We are committed to assuring that the entrepreneurial spirit that has fueled Boston Community Capital’s success for its first 30 years continues to be its driving force. We focus closely on the changing and complex needs of the families and the communities we serve, working to expand the dynamic sources of capital available to bring change and opportunity to our communities, and to partner with diverse constituencies – individuals and institutions who share our goals of creating wealth, opportunity and lasting change at a significant scale.
BCC’s groundbreaking work has been featured in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, The Nation, US News and World Report, The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Economist, and The Christian Science Monitor, and on NPR’s All Things Considered, PBS NewsHour, CBS Evening News, MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, and Fox News.
