“I want to thank Bianca and Megan. After I started coming here to the All Bright Community Center for Coffee Hour and then taking Financial Coaching, everything in my life started falling into place.” - Shirley A. Shirley A. has been a part of the Allston Brighton community for over 17 years. In her young 30 years of life she has had her fair share of challenges. Her 9 year old son Evan was born with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. and when he was just 3 years old, his dad died in a tragic car crash, leaving Shirley as the sole caretaker for their son. In early 2018, after a few one-on-one sessions through the Resident Services Goal Getters financial coaching program, Shirley maximized her income by landing a pre-school teacher position! Now she’s even more motivated and on to fulfilling her next goals, building her credit and getting a bigger apartment!!! Economic mobility, education and wealth building are essential in breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. - PEOPLE OF ABCDC #pplofabcdc #allston #brightonma

February 2018 in Review, From Fried Chicken to Champagne Vending Machines

Gen Sou En (299 Harvard St., Brookline): At this beautifully designed Coolidge Corner space, there is matcha, Japanese pastries, soft serve, bento box-style lunches, and lots more.

This article has 11 other Boston locations (Show)

Anna’s Taqueria (800 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Finally, the local burrito chain has opened its long-awaited Prudential Center location, serving up its usual menu of tacos and more.

Apm Coffee (99 Kneeland St., Chinatown, Boston): Located in the One Greenway apartment building, this coffee shop serves Intelligentsia coffee and swooped in shortly after Beantowne Coffee closed its shop at this address.

Caffe Nero (1375 Boylston St., Fenway, Boston): This European cafe chain continues its Boston takeover with a Fenway location.
