About Us

ACDC works to build healthy, vibrant neighborhoods and a strong Asian American community.

In 1987, community activists and leaders founded ACDC in response to the need for affordable housing in the Chinatown neighborhood. Today, ACDC is a regional community builder and the leader in developing and preserving affordable housing in Greater Boston where Asian Americans live, work and play. ACDC works in partnership with the community to:

  1. Provide culturally appropriate and locally sensitive programs that enable residents to effectively improve their quality of life and the health and sustainability of their neighborhood
  2. Preserve Chinatown as a hub for culture and a continued gateway for new immigrants, and
  3. Strengthen our Asian American community by leading placemaking efforts.
