Mission: 

NSNALT, founded in 1992, bridges the Catalogue’s basic categories of “Nature” and “Culture.” It serves the "higher spiritual needs of residents” as a necessity, not a luxury, in the low-income, blighted community of Upham's Corner, Dorchester. With many volunteers, NSNALT organized clean-ups of local properties, persuaded property owners to make specific improvements and security enhancements, and transformed two desolate spaces at opposite ends of a 400-ft gap

Upham's Corner Main Street

Phone: 

(617) 265-0363

Mission: 

Through a partnership of merchants, residents and civic leaders, our Main Street organization will make Upham’s Corner a thriving, multi-cultural, business and entertainment center that attracts people from all over Boston. UCMS was first created in 1996, when a group of passionate neighborhood residents, merchants, and civic leaders banded together to plan and manage the revitalization of the once vibrant Upham's Corner business and residential district. With a volunteer Board of Directors and a small but committed staff, UCMS set out to create new permanent jobs, an optimal mix of retail businesses, and shopping opportunities that fit the needs of residents.

Location

545 Columbia Road
Dorchester, MA 02125
United States
Key Programs Offered: 

The organization operates under the Four-Point Approach, created by The National Trust for Historic Preservation, to facilitate the revitalization of Upham’s Corner. UCMS mirrors the Four-Point Approach through the use of four committees: Design, Economic Restructuring, Organization, and Promotion.

As one of the 19 programs in the Boston Main Streets network, UCMS is an enterprising program that has a track record of innovative project planning and implementation that has raised the profile of the Upham’s Corner Commercial District. Upham’s Corner is becoming more competitive in the retail and entertainment arenas of Boston and is now a highly sought location for new businesses looking for a profitable location.
