South Shore Works is an independent, dedicated consortium of individuals and key organizations committed to the revitalization of the South Shore community in every aspect. Its primary strategy is to harness the abundance of talent and expertise in the neighborhood to participate in the design and implementation of a strategic plan that will result in a safe, economically viable, aesthetically beautiful community. It is a MOVEMENT, not an organization.
The South Shore Works initiative is asset-based, data-driven and resident-centered. It embraces the principles of synergistic stakeholder planning, shared governance, transparency and collaboration. This model is rooted in a community engagement process that includes working groups that are subject matter specific and a set of support groups whose expertise is essential to all. Broader resident involvement will be achieved through an outreach vehicle called NEXUS.
Working together for change!
To restore the South Shore community to its former greatness, as a safe, diverse, mixed-income
community with a vibrant commercial corridor, stable housing, good schools, and stimulating cultural and recreational outlets and opportunities.
