Millennium Ten brings together long-standing community partners, organizations, new leaders and residents to work together towards the future of Codman Square and Four Corners.
These neighborhoods are home to some of the lowest income census tracts in the City of Boston and rank among the lowest in educational attainment with a number of schools that fall under “Needs Improvement” or “Failing” under No Child Left Behind.
Dorchester has the highest rate of foreclosures in the City of Boston, leading to homeownership displacement, mental anguish and life disruption. The organizations involved with Millennium work to improve the quality of life in Codman Square and Four Corners.
