Stevens Square Community Organization, founded in 1975, is the official neighborhood organization representing the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhoods. 

At SSCO, we are residents working to make sure our neighbors love where they live.

We do this by maintaining a wide range of free programming and opportunities for our fellow SS-LH residents to engage in: from the arts, to gardening and greenspace, to community health and safety, to our built environment, to community connection, to local government - there's something for everyone.

Your donation allows us to expand our ability to provide accessible and relevant activities to our neighbors in Stevens Square-Loring Heights, such as:

  • Long-standing community-building events like Cinema & Civics, the 20-year-strong Red Hot Art Festival, and annual fall and summer events in Stevens Square Park

  • An innovative Rental Discount program, encouraging the large numbers of renters in our neighborhood to get involved by providing a discount on rent up to $225 a month for volunteering and attending community meetings

  • Official community meetings where we facilitate grassroots information exchange and decision-making about issues impacting our neighborhood

  • Free food, translation services, and childcare at events
  • A Citizen-led Safety Team promoting safety and engaging community members through neighborhood walks

  • Community listening-sessions facilitated by neighbors to gather feedback on programming as well as information about our community-member's needs and wants

  • Greening programs like our beautiful community gardens and our seasonal Farmer’s Market

  • And more!
