Urban Edge adapts to support families through crisis

“Boston, like many cities, has an enormous racial wealth gap. Although being a homeowner is not the only way to build wealth, it’s still the number one way that families and individuals build wealth in America. We want to continue to support that,” says our CEO Emilio Dorcely.

Throughout the pandemic, Urban Edge worked to adapt and maintain its services while mitigating fear and COVID concerns. Urban Edge reformatted programs, moved classes to Zoom, and are slowly moving services back to in-person.
