Housing is the Foundation

Housing Assistance Corporation offers housing programs and services throughout Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. We operate four family homeless shelters; provide outreach services to people living on the streets and in the woods; offer financial assistance to prevent homelessness; build new housing; manage nearly 1,200 rental vouchers; and provide foreclosure and reverse mortgage counseling as well as financial literacy and housing advocacy workshops.
Our vision is a community in which everyone is stably housed so that they can live the life they want to live and contribute to a thriving year-round community.
Our mission is two-fold: to deliver housing and services that meet the needs of our local community and limit our impact on natural resources; and to engage in responsible economic development that generates jobs, stabilizes housing and strengthens the community.

Family Self Sufficiency Program Helps Clients Build Future

“Thank you for this program. You changed my life,” Moriya Smith told Housing Assistance staff at the beginning of April when she was celebrating her graduation from our Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) program. A single mother of three, Moriya entered our program in September 2016.

As a Section 8 housing voucher holder, Moriya was eligible for the FSS program, in which participants commit to a five-year plan of reaching goals to increase their income and financial stability. In return, they can receive incentives, such as an escrow savings program and a bonus for giving up their housing voucher to buy a house. For Moriya, who was a certified nursing assistant studying to become a registered nurse, it was a perfect fit.
