About CAN-DO

CAN-DO, Citizens for Affordable Housing in Newton Development Organization, Inc., is a community-based non-profit developer of affordable housing for individuals and families with low and moderate incomes. Founded in 1994, CAN-DO has developed and currently manages a number of affordable housing units, which serve a diverse population.

CAN-DO believes that Newton is enriched by the diversity of its population. Our approach is to educate the community about the need for housing opportunities for Newton's economically diverse population, and to engage residents in creating and supporting viable solutions.

We take a holistic approach to helping residents build skills and develop self-sufficiency. CAN-DO partners with human service organizations in the community to provide residents with support services such as job training, mentoring, childcare, and parenting skills training.

CAN-DO's board of directors is composed of economically and racially diverse Newton residents, including some lifelong members of the community. They are highly committed to CAN-DO's mission and generously contribute their time and professional services.

CAN-DO has created 44 units, 37 of which are deed-restricted permanent affordable housing (see Table of Housing Created, opens in a new window).
