Community Development, General/Other
Population Served:
Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General
Immigrants/Newcomers/Refugees
Ethnic/Racial Minorities -- General

Program Description:

SCC's work is structured into the program areas of real estate development; asset building; and community planning and organizing. Through our Organizing and Planning Department, we engage Somerville residents to become strong leaders, help shape and execute campaigns and community plans, and realize concrete results that address our larger equity agenda. We use popular education, info-graphics, interactive activities, and campaign strategy and action to involve residents in shaping land use and city policies. Campaign work focuses on our local jobs and affordable housing agenda. Committees made up of 10-15 active leaders shape and lead our campaigns. Each year we reach between 1000 and 1500 people through our organizing and community planning work. Our Asset Building Program provides case management, financial literacy and First Time Homebuyer classes, and job readiness work through our newly launched First Source Jobs program, engaging 1000 participants annually.

Program Long-Term Success:

Goal 1: Increase the amount and stabilize the stock of affordable rental and homeownership housing in Somerville. Goal 2: Create and support initiatives that enhance the economic well-being of low and moderate income Somerville residents. Goal 3: Execute vision to expand SCC's impact on transitioning areas of the city to result in more equitable outcomes. Goal 4: Expand SCC's membership base and invest in the development of leaders in SCC and in the community. Goal 5: Broaden and strengthen SCC's operations, internal policies and financial position in order to support and facilitate SCC's achievement of its intended impact.

Program Success Monitored by:

We ask participants of every meeting to evaluate orally and in writing the effectiveness of the meeting. We track the numbers of people who participate, the diversity of participants, and the continued level of involvement of individual participants. We are attentive to which activities and methodologies are most effective in engaging participants. How many stakeholders from target audiences have publicly endorsed our work or helped to move our agenda forward? One measure of success will be whether or not our core campaigns lead to the desired victories. Are elected officials incorporating our positions into their own platforms? Can we also impact regional and state decisions on relevant policies? We will use the Equity Standards created by Link Somerville to help guide and track decisions, policies, and practices across various stakeholder groups. We will also utilize the 4 indicators established through the ""Dimensions of Displacement"" report to track affordability over time.

Program Success Examples:

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Our overarching goal as Somerville's only Community Development Corporation, is to contribute to and influence land use transformation and redevelopment in Somerville so that the end result leaves intact Somerville's socio-economically diverse population. SCC includes the following 5 goals in its Strategic Plan: * Goal #1: Increase the amount and stabilize the stock of affordable rental and homeownership housing in Somerville. * Goal #2: Create and support initiatives that enhance the economic well-being of low and moderate income Somerville residents. * Goal #3: Magnify, sharpen, and expand SCC's impact on areas of the city most prone to change, to result in more equitable outcomes. * Goal #4: Expand our Membership Base and invest in the development of leaders in SCC and in the community. * Goal #5: Broaden and strengthen SCC's operations, internal policies and financial position in order to support and facilitate SCC's achievement of its intended impact. Our top 3-5 accomplishments from this year include: One, the completion of the third and final phase of Saint Polycarp Development, adding 31 affordable apartments to Somerville and approval of site permit to build 35 affordable apartments at 181 Washington Street despite opposition from a core of active abutters; Two, the launch of a First Source Program connecting local workers with local jobs, with funding awarded from the City to SCC as lead organization. This results from a multi-year organizing campaign. Three, passage of an increase of the Housing Linkage Fee from $3.91 to $5.15 for commercial properties above a 30,000sf threshold; Four, a growth of participation in Asset Building programs from 363 people in 2012 to 469 people in 2013; Five, Public release of 2 important resources to guide future work around equity and displacement: a. The Dimensions of Displacement; and b. The Equity Standards.
