Narrative

The Vietnamese American Initiative for Development (Viet-AID) was founded in 1994 by community leaders and residents who believed that a community develpment corporation would provide comprehensive economic development programs and services to alleviate poverty and advance civic participation in the Field Corner Vietnamese community of Dorchester. Viet-AID's mission is to build a strong Vietnamese community and a vibrant Fields Corner through the following measures: promoting civic engagement and community building; developing affordable housing and commercial space; providing small business technical assistance and micro-enterprise development; and offering high quality child care services.
