About  Us

The Everett Haitian Community Center (EHCC) is a nonprofit organization committed to serving immigrant and marginalized communities in the Greater Boston area. EHCC provides holistic assistance to individuals and families through community programs, resources, and services. As a critical and trusted resource to the community at large, EHCC bridges gaps for those in need as they provide access to critical information.  


Caring for our communities in body, spirit, mind, and soul is at the core of our values.


Our Mission

EHCC has become an expert on community outreach, advocacy, and the implementation of programs to address socio-economic, cultural, and educational needs. We have also been working to remove the obstacles that have resulted in lack of access to fair, affordable housing, employment, resources, and other necessary services.

EHCC was founded because we saw the need for advocacy among the most marginalized communities, notably immigrant communities of color. We could not stand by and watch vulnerable populations fend for themselves and decided that we had a duty to help. EHCC has made it its mission to be a voice for the voiceless, a resource for the resourceless, and a helping hand for the helpless.


Community Outreach

EHCC fights for equitable access to resources and assistance for all those who are marginalized within Everett and the Greater Boston area. We endeavor to bridge the gaps in access resources, information, and assistance to minorities within Greater Boston.

EHCC is a resource for the community at large. We encourage the community at large to reach out to us and stay informed as we routinely organized food drives, share information, host virtual events, and launch informational campaigns to address community needs and to provide culturally appropriate responses to issues impacting the communities we serve.

Our focus is holistic assistance to the community, through community organizing, community empowerment, and provision of programs, resources, and services.
