Creekside Commons

Creekside Commons, beautiful and affordable housing adjacent to the church, opened in 2010.

This project, completed with Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, has drawn widespread praise for its attractive design and for addressing our city’s needs for housing choice and transit accessibility.

Today, we enjoy a growing relationship with our Creekside neighbors, with a team of Mayflower members tending to our mutual community.

Creekside Programming

Through the contribution of its congregants’ time, talent and resources, Mayflower UCC creates, executes and supports projects and on-going programs at Creekside Commons to achieve the following objectives:

  • Create a secure and stable home environment within which Creekside Commons residents can continue to build and strengthen a workable foundation for their lives.
  • Build connectedness between Creekside Commons residents and their surrounding communities, such that they create a strong sense of belonging and desire to integrate into their new residence and neighborhood.
