Resident and Community Engagement

Our Resident and Community Engagement Team works as a catalyst for sustainable growth and positive change.

Through a comprehensive range of resources, advocacy, and organizing initiatives, we foster community partnerships and amplify the voices of the people we serve. Our dedicated team is committed to conducting extensive outreach, working tirelessly as educators and facilitators, ensuring that residents are informed and supported. We prioritize housing stabilization by providing essential support, including mediation and life coaching, to promote stable and thriving neighborhoods.

Recognizing the impact of trauma, we approach our services with a trauma-informed care framework, ensuring that every interaction is sensitive, compassionate, and supportive.

At Dorchester Bay, we believe in authentic Community Engagement where community development comes from residents, community partners and small businesses working to create positive change in neighborhoods and communities. Together, we are building a brighter future where residents are engaged, communities thrive, and voices are heard. Please reach out to our Resident and Community Engagement team with any questions.
