Housing Program

 

Here’s the challenge:  how do young families who work in the service industry or entry and mid-level management balance Greater Boston housing costs with a manageable commute to work in the city?

Some Sudanese want to buy or rent a home, but costs can be prohibitive and determining affordability is daunting. SSEF assists families in finding housing by navigating the confusion of affordable housing lists in surrounding communities and by connecting families with other community-based housing initiatives.

Visit SSEF's Housing Resources page for helpful information about affordable housing opportunities, agencies by town, and housing workshops & mentoring.
