THE POWER OF COMMUNITY
We Make Things Happen
The Roxbury Action Program is an enthusiastic group of leaders and volunteers dedicated to bringing prosperity, financial literacy, education, resources, and opportunities to the Roxbury Community.
We understand that prosperity needs to be bootstrapped with targeted programs to help individuals take advantage of available opportunities.
It is our goal to promote equity and inclusion for Black and Brown residents to ensure an active, vibrant and healthy community life.

We are excited to announce our landmark project at 50 Cedar Street. We are commencing a renovation of this historic Roxbury building. When completed, this building will serve as a hub for social programs and community development. We are currently raising capital to complete this project and expect to begin work on the building by the second quarter of 2023.
