Healthy Homes

TND continued to strengthen our communities by creating or preserving 81 homes. 39 new apartments for seniors at One Beach and four for young parents at Lewis Latimer Place were completed. Via the TND Homes I project, 38 homes were rehabbed.  TND is at 43% of our strategic goal for 2015-2019, with $34.6 million invested in quality affordable homes.

Deep Partnerships

2015-2019 Goal: Strengthen cross-sector endeavors
Progress: Chelsea Thrives matures 

TND invests deeply in our partnerships. Through Chelsea Thrives, TND stewards multi-party programming focused on improving safety. With 70 private and public sector institutions working in conjunction with nearly 600 residents, Thrives is making progress on multiple fronts to change the systems affecting social drivers of crime and sense of safety. 

Fostering Youth Opportunity

The Youth Opportunity Task Force was created in early 2016 to focus on youth risk and opportunity. It created a series of recommendations for policy and programmatic responses to expand youth programming and support youth and family resiliency. The committee of 35 is comprised equally of youth, their parents, and representatives from municipal and non-profit agencies. Early outcomes: Chelsea formed a Parks and Recreation Department; basketball pick-up game series piloted; CPD to launch Overcoming Violence for all 7th graders.
