Volunteer with the Historic Boston-Edison Association

The Historic Boston-Edison Association is headed by an elected Board of Directors, however, much of the Association work is performed in HBEA's committees.

Committee membership is open to all residents of Boston-Edison. Volunteers are needed on all committees. If you love the Boston-Edison neighborhood and want to help make a difference, Volunteer Now! Call the Boston-Edison Phone Line at 313-883-4360 and express your interest or send us an email.
