There is no place like home. At HAPHousing, we work to provide safe, affordable homes for families and to help revitalize our communities.
For more than 40 years, HAPHousing has helped your neighbors in Hampden and Hampshire Counties provide safe and stable homes for their families. We believe that every family should have access to the training and support they need in order to become self-sufficient and to live safely in a diverse, vibrant community.
But there are so many families that need our help to overcome so many obstacles: unemployment, unfinished education, lack of financial management skills, issues with childcare, poor credit, or transportation – and often, all of the above.
HAPHousing is committed to helping our neighbors achieve their dreams of financial independence and a home of their own, as a first-time homeowner or perhaps just moving their family from a motel or shelter into a safe and comfortable apartment.
Your support is why we are able to perform our important work.
Last year, HAPHousing served more than 16,000 clients. As a Housing Consumer Education Center, we help families overcome eviction, discrimination, foreclosure, and other serious issues. We also:
-Provide rental assistance, first-time homebuyer education, financial literacy training, and foreclosure prevention counseling.
-To help families become self-sufficient, we work with many sister agencies to help clients achieve their educational, employment, and financial goals.
-Help families avoid becoming homeless with financial assistance and supportive services and for families who are already homeless, we help them move out of shelters and motels into apartments of their own.
-Provide transitional housing and supportive services to survivors of domestic violence, teen mothers, and their children.
-Develop, rehabilitate, and manage affordable housing(single- and multi-family homes as well as apartment units) in many communities across Western Mass.
-Engage residents and other stakeholders in planning, rebuilding, and advocacy efforts to strengthen and revitalize their communities.
HAPHousing is a private, non-profit organization with headquarters in Springfield. Our mission is to provide affordable housing opportunities, education and support, enabling people to achieve a better future and promoting vibrant, diverse communities.
Please give generously.
