Advancing Equal Housing Opportunities for Immigrant Communities

MISSION

Caribbean Integration Community Development (CICD) is dedicated to working with and for Caribbean immigrants and people of color to build more vibrant and economically resilient neighborhoods. CICD fosters community development by creating affordable housing and  implementing programs that revitalize distressed neighborhoods, preserve ethnic, cultural, racial diversity, and advance the economic and social well-being of Boston residents.

CICD's model for change:

The U.S. is confronting an affordable housing crisis, and it's impacting Americans across the income spectrum. In Greater Boston, housing costs have increased faster than incomes for the poorest third of families, exacerbating local inequality and widening the racial wealth gap.

CICD leverages real estate development in struggling communities to build healthy neighborhoods and broadens access to economic opportunities. We develop affordable housing solutions and offer culturally sensitive support and resources through programming for professional development, workforce training and community engagement.
