SCC helps to make Somerville more livable, sustainable, and inclusive by increasing and diversifying housing options, as well as organizing in the community around affordable housing policy,

Kòm nou move tan kriz la COVID-19 ak pare SCC pou tan kap vini an, nou te espesyalman raple sou enpòtans ki genyen nan kay – nan lavi nou, lavi pitit nou yo, ak kominote nou an. Lakay se refij ak kay ki apa pou nou an, e se yon bagay nou tout merite. Lojman abòdab se yon pwoblèm sante piblik e yo ta dwe yon dwa. Until further notice and in accordance with state safety protocols, the SCC office is open only by appointment.

Pou kont nou nou ka fè sa ti kras; ansanm nou ka fè anpil.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
