Mission Statement

DSNI's mission is to empower Dudley residents to organize, plan for, create and control a vibrant, diverse and high quality neighborhood in collaboration with community partners.

Background Statement

The Dudley Village Campus (DVC), with a population of 26,560 (2010 Census), is one of the poorest neighborhoods of Boston and our schools have extremely high poverty ratesAt 34.1%, the poverty rate for Dudley residents is more than twice that of Boston as a whole (14%); 38% of DVC children live below the Federal poverty line.


Dudley is racially and ethnically diverse. Fifty-two per cent of the population is Black, 12.5% is White, and less than 2% is Asian. Approximately 22% of the residents are immigrants from the Cape Verde Islands. Half of residents speak a language other than English at home. Immigrant families report feeling isolated from the society around them, not knowing the rules, how systems function, or how to access information and resources.


DVC families live squarely at the intersection of multiple gaps –in quality education, living wage job opportunities, stable housing, quality health care, healthy affordable food, and transportation.


As it has made its long, slow transition from a manufacturing to an information and professional services economy, greater Boston has lost jobs: more than 33,400 jobs in the past decade. Income inequality (especially along race and ethnic lines) is greater here than in the U.S. as a whole and is rising faster than in the U.S. as a whole. The Massachusetts Office of Labor and Workforce Development estimates that 45% of all jobs with growth through 2016 will require at least a Bachelor’s Degree, but in Dudley, only 13.8% of residents have a Bachelor’s or higher degree.


The lack of sufficient secure and affordable housing in Dudley poses a major challenge to efforts to improve the academic performance of children. DSNI’s innovative community land trust provides an island of housing stability with no foreclosures, but represents a small fraction of Dudley housing units. The number and concentration of foreclosure petitions over a period of several years remains disproportionately high compared to other parts of Boston. There has been a dramatic increase in family homelessness, statewide, but the largest percentage of homeless families in Massachusetts comes from Boston. Within Boston, 59% of homeless families surveyed in shelter came from the area surrounding the Dudley neighborhood. A particular challenge facing our community is the rapid growth in the number of homeless families with a head of household between the ages of 18-24 years of age.

Impact Statement

Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI) is a resident-led community change collaborative in the Dudley area of the Roxbury and North Dorchester neighborhoods of Boston. 

When DSNI was founded in 1984 the Dudley Street neighborhood had been devastated by disinvestment, arson and dumping. Thirty of 64 acres of land stood vacant. Virtually all of these previously vacant lots are now part of the Dudley Neighbors, Inc (DNI) land trust and permanently dedicated to community use as green space or to affordable housing (DSNI developed 225 units of affordable housing). DSNI has helped create opportunities and develop the neighborhood’s workforce as lead agency for the GOTCHA Youth Jobs Collaborative-- which has coordinated employment for 350 + youth annually since 2003—and through our success ensuring that nearly $15 million in contracts awarded during the $30 million Kroc Center project went to minority and women-owned businesses. Our work to leverage non-monetary community resources in support of students has been credited by Orchard Gardens Principal Andrew Bott as being instrumental in the turnaround school’s impressive improvement.

Today our work is focused in 3 strategic areas: 

(1) Community Empowerment-- civic engagement, education reform, leadership development, neighbor­hood governance

(2) Sustainable and Economic Development-- (community land trust, affordable housing, community planning, workforce development

(3) Youth Opportunities/Development-- summer and year-round youth jobs, Dudley Youth Council, college-bound, cultural and recreational programs, violence prevention

As the lead agency for the Boston Promise Initiative-- a place-based approach to ensuring that all Boston children have high quality educational opportunities and attain educational success-- DSNI is working to align the efforts and resources of families, community and faith-based organizations, schools and universities, businesses and service-providers, government and institutional partners to create the Dudley Village Campus (DVC)—a learning community that supports students as whole people, preparing them for sustained success in school.


Needs Statement

The Dudley Neighborhood is one of the highest poverty areas in Boston. DSNI is the lead agency for Boston Promise Initiative (BPI), which seeks to support all children holistically so they can succeed in school and life. DSNI is focusing its longstanding organizing work on creating and coordinating the Dudley Village Campus (DVC)—a place structured around children’s healthy development and learning. Our greatest funding needs are crucial parts of this project:


Since many schools, organizations, and programs in the community are working to address the various issues that affect each family and individual student, we must build a robust, secure, online data system for collecting, analyzing, and sharing results to inform our work. 


To ensure that the youngest children in our neighborhood get a healthy start in life and are ready for kindergarten, DSNI hosts Dudley Children Thrive (a Thrive in 5 site) to provide information, activities, and referrals to hard-to-reach families of children aged 0-5 years. 

In order for students to be ready to learn when they are at school, their basic needs must be met outside of school. In a community with high rates of poverty and foreclosures, DSNI works to strengthen families by increasing housing stability, enhancing economic opportunities, and creating jobs.

ArtPlace Initiative

DSNI is the lead partner in a collaborative effort, the Upham Corner's ArtPlace Initiative, which builds upon the cultural assets and ethnic traditions of neighborhood residents to encourage cultural economic activity and increase arts programming and opportunities. The initiative works with local youth, residents, artists and business owners to design interactive public art installations on vacant or underutilized storefronts and lots, pilot a cultural market in Upham's Corner, and to increase culturally relevant programming at The Strand Theatre and other locations. The ArtPlace Initiative is also working to identify and support local artists and artisans. This initiative is supported by the Boston Foundation with funding and technical assistance. Additional partners include Jose Mateo Ballet Theater, Berklee School of Music, UMass Boston Trotter Institute, Dorchester Bay EDC and the City of Boston Department of Arts, Tourism and Special Events.
Budget  $65,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other
Population Served Families
Program Short-Term Success 

In the short term, we expect local and non-local awareness of arts and cultural assets in the neighborhood, more local attendance at the historical Strand Theatre in Upham’s Corner, local economic growth opportunities through more youth employment through partnerships at the Strand Theatre and increased public art that is representative of the culturally diversity of the neighborhood.

Program Long-Term Success 

 Residents, artists and business owners will have ownership over arts and cultural planning in the neighborhood. Arts will play a central role in the neighborhood and be integrated into the overall community planning.

Dudley Children Thrive (DCT)

Dudley Children Thrive (DCT) is our early childhood initiative that is part of a citywide initiative called Boston Children Thrive. DCT is a collaborative initiative committed to being sure that families have the tools, confidence, knowledge and networks they need to help prepare their children for the highest levels of success in school and life. The three key focus areas are Early Literacy (Word Build), Nutrition and Wellness. 
Budget  $125,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Early Childhood Education
Population Served Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success     
Program Long-Term Success 
  • Parents will have the skills, confidence and knowledge they need to be leaders and advocates for their children's learning and development
  • Families will continuously play a leadership role in expanding community capacity to support children's healthy development from birth
  • DCT children will enter school ready to succeed
Program Success Monitored By  We strive to reach our goals through monthly tri-lingual newsletters that offer 1) neighborhood specific literacy and skill building information/activities and 2) health promotion information, an early literacy and language campaign, monthly events which engage and connect DCT families to resources and each other, as well as, a Thrive in 5 Parent Leadership Program. Success is measured through participation and attendance in these activities as well as the feedback we receive from families. In addition, we have developed a point and reward system for DCT families who engage their children in learning and skill building activities at home. Parents send in pictures and videos to show that they are doing these activities, which in turn allows us to measure the amount of time parents are spending on such activities and to notice differences in the child's learning and skill attainment over time.
Examples of Program Success  With over 400 families enrolled in DCT and consistently high attendance numbers at DCT monthly events, the levels of engagement and number of families active in the initiative show us that we are successfully reaching our families and working towards our program goals. 

No Child Goes Homeless

The No Child Goes Homeless initiative provides housing assistance, eviction prevention services and other emergency aid to prevent homelessness among families with children in the Dudley Village Campus (DVC) schools while advocating for citywide policy reform and maintaining access to permanently affordable housing in the neighborhood. The initiative is focused on working with families connected to DVC schools, as we have found deep correlations between the student academic achievement and housing stability. Initiated as a collaboration between DSNI and Project Hope, a catholic family services agency in the DVC, which focuses on serving women and children, the collaboration has grown to include key DVC school staff and Youth Harbors, an organization similar to Project Hope that serves families outside of our target area. The intersection of service delivery, community organizing, and public policy helps partners build on each other’s success and resources.

Budget  --
Category  Housing, General/Other Housing Counseling
Population Served Families Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 

With very limited data, we have been able to demonstrate that there is a positive correlation between housing stability and children’s school attendance, with the children who are homeless having average attendance around 53% and the children who are housed having average attendance around 74%.

For the children for whom we have attendance data before and after placement last year (17 children), we saw improvement in attendance after housing placement for 76% of the children. This year we expect to see a similar increases in student attendance for at least 75% of the students whose families are now permanently housed.

In addition, we will prevent evictions for 30 families, and after 6 months, at least 27 (or 90%) of these families will still be housed.

Program Long-Term Success 

Given our initial success, last year DSNI was invited to host a session to share best practices and recommendations by the Mayor’s Chief of Education. The session was leveraged to inform citywide policy and will be built upon in the coming year. By combining the power of policy reform and resident centered data driven direct service housing stability influences the ability of children and youth to experience healthy development and academic success. The success of young people in the DVC is not only an indicator of the health and vitality of our neighborhood but essential to sustaining a thriving and vibrant urban village for future generation.

Program Success Monitored By 

DSNI will utilize Sales Force and Results Score Card, a case management and longitudinal data systems. That will enable us to track changes at the individual, community and population levels. Service providers collect demographic data on all referred family members in ETO. They also enter data regarding eviction preventions, funding utilized to prevent evictions, housing placements, and retention rates into ETO. Information on Individual Service Plans will be collected by service providers in spreadsheets and children’s attendance records will be collected from each school. DSNI’s Data Manager will utilize our tools to integrate the data systems of our partners

Examples of Program Success  Since it’s inception in 2012, No Child Goes Homeless has partnered with three DVC schools – the Dearborn, Orchard Gardens and Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School. We have developed strong relationships with school staff and Project Hope has provided school trainings on the issue of student homelessness. 115 families have been referred to Project Hope and, of these, 43 families either obtained affordable housing or were able to retain their current housing.

Stronger Leaders Brighter Future

Stronger Leaders Brighter Future (SLBF) is a community based, 1 on 1 mentoring program that matches youth from the Dudley Village Campus (DVC) to adults from the community. The purpose of the program is to help eighth through twelfth grade students living in the DVC realize their potential and increase their level of motivation and confidence, by connecting them to caring and supportive adults.
Budget  .
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) Males
Program Short-Term Success  The mentoring program will help build and stabilize the self-esteem and confidence of each youth participant, in academic, professional and personal areas. Youth will set personal goals, learn to have high expectations for themselves and gain knowledge around how to take advantage of available resources. Mentees will also have a complete skill-building plan with guidance from their mentors and taken steps towards developing and attaining new skills. Finally, SLBF will enable youth to connect with an adult who is committed to his/her success and interested in building a mutual relationship.
Program Long-Term Success 
  1. To connect all youth in the Dudley Village Campus with a caring consistent adult through a mentoring relationship
  2. To empower youth to make positive decisions by guiding them in the development and implementation of individualized skill building and goal setting plans
  3. To expand youth's resources by helping them navigate systems in order to achieve their goals and reach their highest potential. 
Program Success Monitored By  At the start of the program, each youth completes a survey that we use as a baseline to measure progress and development in academic, professional and personal areas. We compare this to surveys that are completed in the middle and end of the program year, in order to note areas of growth and further development need. In addition, we ask for report cards so that we can evaluate any changes in academic performance. Throughout the program, the Program Coordinator is in regular communication with both the mentee and the mentor as a way of tracking any changes in behavior. As we encourage matches to continue beyond the required program year, we also use the number of matches that decide to stay together for more than a year as a measure of success.
Examples of Program Success      

Youth Employment

DSNI is the lead organization in a collaborative youth employment effort, GOTCHA (Get Off the Corner Hanging Around), with 5 planning partners: Bird Street Community Center, Dorchester Bay EDC, The City School, The Food Project and Youth Police in Partnership. The effort focuses on providing meaningful year round youth employment opportunities and connecting youth to other critical resources that include personal, emotional and intellectual supports. At DSNI, we employ approximately 60 youth, during the school year and summer. Through employment at DSNI, youth build skills in a variety of ways ranging from specific trainings to interactive activities, staff shadowing to direct action and practice. We specifically focus on building 4 primary skills: communication, critical thinking, teamwork and community organizing. DSNI has found that engaging youth through employment is not only crucial to helping youth develop skills but also to mobilize youth and young adults to make change throughout the school year and summer.
Budget  $15,000.00
Category  Employment, General/Other Youth Job Training & Employment
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
  • Youth employed at DSNI build skill primarily in four areas: communication, critical thinking, teamwork and community organizing, which allows them to be successful in their academics, personal lives and careers.
  • Youth employed at DSNI stay connected to the organization through other programming
Program Long-Term Success  All youth in the DVC will have the opportunity to have year-long meaningful, quality and skill-building job opportunities that prepare them well for the workforce. 
Program Success Monitored By  With youth employment, we measure success through the change in youth's attitude and confidence in themselves as capable of catalyzing change. Skill attainment is assessed through competency based tolls that provide youth with the knowledge of where they stand as well as the steps they need to take in order to excel. These assessments give them the language to talk about their skill attainment with others, which in turn prepares them to be competitive in an ever-changing work environment.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
