Who We Are

Established in 1968, Newton Community Development Foundation (NCDF) has played a key role in shaping apartment community living throughout the City of Newton, MA, with a particular emphasis on affordable housing. Having decades of experience, we offer well-designed and well-managed communities offering programs and services intended to enhance tenancies.


Newton Community Development Foundation (NCDF) is a private, not for profit 501(C)(3) organized to foster economic and cultural diversity in the City of Newton through the development and management of mixed-income and affordable housing communities for low- and moderate-income individuals, families, senior citizens and persons with disabilities. Our comprehensive Resident Services program addresses the various and changing needs of our residents through a range of supportive services and activities that enrich lives, promote a healthy lifestyle, foster community spirit and sustain independent living.


In June 1968, twenty four priests, ministers, and rabbis from the Newton Clergy Association, along with members of Church Women United, all met to pursue ways to meet the housing needs of the community. At that meeting, the group incorporated the Newton Community Development Foundation (NCDF). Later that year, the leadership of the Foundation was transferred from the Clergy to a lay board of distinguished Newton citizens.
