Welcome to Charlesview, Inc.!
Charlesview, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to building community in Allston-Brighton for more than 40 years. Our achievements began with the development of Charlesview Apartments in Allston in 1969 and more recently include the creation of the new Charlesview Residences along Western Avenue in Brighton, Massachusetts.
We invite you to learn more about us, to find out about rental and homeownership opportunities at the new Charlesview Residences and to see what’s happening at our exciting new Charlesview Community Center.
Building on tradition and finding new ways to pursue our mission.
In 1969 five congregations joined together to found Charlesview, Inc. and build Charlesview Apartments to provide quality affordable housing and preserve a close-knit community. Today, three of the congregations – St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Community United Methodist Church and Congregation Kadimah-Toras Moshe – still actively manage Charlesview, Inc., working to preserve and strengthen the Allston-Brighton community. The new Charlesview Residences and the Community Center will bring many new ways to pursue our mission.

Facilitated by Healthy Waltham, the six-week long workshop, which met once a week for three hours, involved an overview of healthy ingredients, how to read labels, and how to use healthy substitute ingredients. Following the educational component, participants would use new, healthy recipes to prepare full meals on site. Then all would sit down and share the fruits of their labor. Delicious!
