About Oak Hill CDC

Founded in 1972 as the Oak Hill Housing Council to address the shortage of safe, affordable housing, and later incorporated in 1983 with assistance from Friendly House and support from the Worcester Community Action Council and becoming the Oak Hill Community Development Corporation in 1985, the organization is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit community revitalization entity serving the lower Grafton Hill area of the City of Worcester. Oak Hill CDC currently focuses its work within the Union Hill, Oak Hill and Upsala Street neighborhoods of Worcester’s East Side, all inner-city neighborhoods characterized by high levels of poverty, unemployment, real estate disinvestment, crime and low levels of educational attainment. Additionally, its activities in Homeownership Promotion and Homeownership Preservation extend into Greater Worcester/south central Massachusetts.

Oak Hill CDC has steadily increased its volume and range of activities. In 2002, Oak Hill CDC established the NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center of Central Massachusetts; more information can be found at
