About Us

CAN-DO is a 28 year old organization that develops primarily rental units affordable to families with very low-incomes in Newton. During the past 3 years, its focus during the pandemic has been on providing information to Newton's low-income families about the services and financial benefits they are entitled to from local, state and federal governments. It anticipates returning to the the development of rental housing for
very low and extremely low income families.

Brookline Bank donates to CAN-DO
CAN-DO built two new duplexes on the Christina Street property with the Kayla A. Rosenberg house. One of these four units was sold to a moderate-income family supported by Newton's First-Time Homebuyer program, and three were sold at market rate.
This historic three unit building in Newton Corner, named for a former board member who died unexpectedly, opened in 1996 and provides transitional housing for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence. The women are graduates of the Second Step Program in Newton, which provides housing and supportive services. The families are also assisted in finding permanent housing.
Linden Green Homes
Veteran House includes 2 units, one 2-bedroom unit and one 3 bedroom unit located in the Auburndale neighborhood. It is now fully occupied by two veteran families.
