Maverick Landing Community Services (MLCS) was established in 2007 to serve the residents of the newly completed development and the surrounding East Boston Community. In 2001 The Boston Housing Authority was awarded a HOPE VI grant for the redevelopment of Maverick Gardens public housing. Along with the HOPE VI grant for redevelopment, MLCS was granted funding for services. Since then, MLCS has been a self-sustainable nonprofit located in the heart of the Maverick Landing, a community that houses over 1400 people.
In the spring of 2016 we completed a community-informed strategic plan that is guiding our work.
