What We Do
B’nai B’rith Housing works with cities and towns to create economically viable, affordable housing options which respond to the needs and aspirations of each community. Our housing, both rental and home ownership, is for young families and older adults, regardless of religion or background.
Why Affordable Housing?
Workforce, senior and family housing
Many cities and towns in the Greater Boston area are faced with a growing senior population but few options for seniors to downsize and remain in the town where they have built their lives. For young families, the cost of housing is so high that they are priced out of many communities.
Smart-growth and transit-oriented projects
Building affordable housing is also a focus for economic growth in the region. Without it, Massachusetts companies will struggle to retain their workforce as residents leave for less expensive areas of the country.
