With the current uncertainty surrounding us, we are reminded of one constant — how important our homes are in keeping us safe, happy, and healthy.

At Housing Assistance, we remain committed to ensuring our most vulnerable neighbors have access to the critical housing services they need during these uncertain times. We are still open for business with most staff working remotely, and we are continuing to connect people on Cape Cod and the Islands to safe, stable housing.

Now, more than ever, our neighbors will need housing to keep them safe and to mitigate the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus.

You can help by donating to the Workforce Housing Relief Fund which helps people in a financial crisis stay housed. This is a flexible fund designed to help people who do not meet the eligibility limits of state and federal programs, but due to lost wages, medical bills or other unexpected expenses, need help paying past-due rent or mortgage payments so they can stay in their homes, off the streets and out of shelter.

If there ever was a time to keep people housed, it is now.

We anticipate that our services and resources will be in high demand in the coming weeks as our workforce (bartenders, waitstaff, small business owners, freelancers, artists, and more) begin to feel the impact of all the business closures. Too many of our neighbors live one or two paychecks away from homelessness.

To protect our community and staff, we have suspended in-person client meetings and we are moving as many employees as possible to a work-from-home model. If you or someone you know is facing a housing crisis, please have them call (508)-771-5400 or email

Please take care of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s use these next few days and weeks as an opportunity to come together as a community and support one another, especially those who may be struggling, anxious, or alone.

Stay safe,


Alisa Magnotta
Chief Executive Officer
