The Next 50 Years 

For the past 50 years, Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) has been a vital presence in Greater Boston and beyond, empowering Asians and new immigrants to build healthy families, achieve greater economic success, and contribute to thriving communities.

Our Mission is to ensure that the children, youth, and families we serve have the resources and supports they need to achieve greater economic success and social well-being.


2018– 2022 Strategic Priorities:

Protect the Cultural Vitality of Chinatown

  • Establish the Pao Arts Center, an arts and cultural center that promotes the cultural identity and visibility of Chinatown while enriching Boston’s arts sector.

  • Provide families with access to cultural resources that strengthen family and community relationships in a changing environment.

  • Lead a cross-sector collaborative effort that supports artists and honors the history and character of Chinatown.

Support Immigrant Families in Quincy

  • Serve more immigrant families in the South Shore through new lines of service and widened outreach.

  • Expand coordination of the local social services safety net for immigrant families by collaborating more deeply with other organizations and institutions on the South Shore.

  • Improve accessibility of BCNC Quincy location by redesigning office and program spaces.


Increase Access to Civic Engagement

  • Facilitate empowerment through opportunities to participate in policy discussions at the community level and beyond.

  • Work strategically in coalition with other communities to ensure public resources and programs are implemented in a manner that is equitable to all people.              

  • Contribute to the body of academic and popular knowledge about the specific needs, challenges, and opportunities faced by the families we serve.
