Abstract:

The paper describes and analyzes the developmental processes of Quincy Geneva Housing Corporation, Inc (QGHC). It is based in the Grove Hall area and serves parts of North Roxbury and North Dorchester in Boston. QGHC is the case of a targeted place-based economic organization. Formed in the 1980s and incorporated as a community development corporation (CDC), QGHC, is essentially a community-run organization that finances, develops, rehabilitates and manages housing and commercial real estate projects as well as many other services in its targeted communities. QGHC is an economic entity with demonstrated successes in property acquisition—residential and commercial. QGHC provides a range of self-help and development services to organization and residents within its zones of impact.

In 2002, despite its successes in carrying out its mission, QGHC was forced to defend against a "hostile take-over," to resist outside incursion and fight to protect its economic self-sufficiency and viability. Specifically, this paper will focus on these research questions:

(1) What tactics made possible QGHC’s early successful market initiatives and what was the impact on the quality of life for the residents in the CDC target area?
(2) What structural or management conditions made QGHC vulnerable to take over from a group that was not of the target service area and that represented a different economic, racial and ethnic demographic?
(3) What were the economic and internal social dynamics that made possible QGHC’s innovative resistance and the successful maintenance of its position in its target service area?

The answers to these questions provide insights into the interface of organizational structure and locational space with economic empowerment. Conclusions from the data underscore the centrality of organized connections with like groups to maintaining an organization’s efficacy, sustainability, survival, and economic viability.
