About

Who We Are

We are New Bedford.  We live, work, and play in this City and want it to thrive.  We believe that housing is a key component to the future of our community, and we recognize that housing is becoming a scarce commodity.  Our goal is to provide a community voice to better inform government, policy, and development.  We also want to inform the public about the opportunities, needs, and responsibilities necessary for a thriving housing market in New Bedford.


Our group has an open membership of people and organizations that believe, that by working together, communicating effectively, and having a smart plan we will ensure that New Bedford’s housing future is bright for all residents.

We are a new group that works in conjunction with numerous organizations throughout the community.  Our leadership is developing and we are always welcoming members.  Some of our Partners Include:
