The Neighborhood Developers

The Neighborhood Developers (TND), formerly Chelsea Neighborhood Developers, is a community development corporation that seeks to revitalize distressed neighborhoods and to foster equitable community development in Chelsea, Massachusetts and neighboring North Shore communities. We were founded in 1979 and for our first 25 years, affordable housing development was our primary area of activity. Over time, we learned that we needed to broaden our community development strategies to achieve meaningful revitalization of distressed neighborhoods.  Today, TND employs three investment strategies to build vibrant and sustainable neighborhoods: 1) real estate development to strengthen housing markets and to expand affordable housing inventory; 2) community engagement to foster a resilient social fabric and civic infrastructure; and 3) financial capabilities to increase family prosperity.  For more information visit www.theneighborhooddevelopers.org
