Housing

Finding and sustaining affordable housing is one of the toughest challenges in greater Boston. Through our offices in Boston and Malden, we’re supporting people in their search and working to prevent families from entering homelessness by providing housing counseling. We provide assistance, including information to help you navigate the maze of paperwork and procedures that comes with subsidized housing.
