Narrative

Mission: Inquilinos Boricuas en Accion (IBA) is a dynamic community building agency dedicated to empowering and engaging individuals and families through high-quality affordable housing, education, and arts programs. History: The predominantly Puerto Rican residents of Parcel 19, a South End community whose existence was threatened by urban renewal, established IBA in 1968. Rallying to the cry, " No nos mudaremos de la Parcela 19" ("We shall not be moved from Parcel 19"), the residents conducted a multi-year campaign that won them the right to control the redevelopment process of their community. The result was the creation of Villa Victoria, a 435-unit low and moderate-income neighborhood which today houses more than 3,000 residents. IBA is proud to be considered one of the most successful community development models in the United States.
