Where We Live: Share Some Insight On Housing Options in The Bay State

How is the Housing (3).png

Housing at the Heart
Housing is at the heart of a community's well-being. In both towns and cities, access to adequate & affordable housing is crucial for enabling residents to live/age safely, independently, and comfortably. By offering diverse housing options, communities empower individuals to retain agency over their living arrangements. Accessible housing fosters inclusive, thriving communities where individuals can live and age with dignity & choice.
