“When Housing Assistance Corporation was founded in 1974, we never imagined the Cape would be the place it is now. We’ve still got our beautiful seashores and quaint village centers, but we also have development sprawl and social challenges that we never envisioned. Even so, most of us consider ourselves blessed for the opportunity to live and work here.
The idea of sustainability and all that implies is something that we, at HAC, have been thinking about a lot lately. A community can only be strong and vibrant if its residents have adequate housing, along with access to decent healthcare, education, clean air and water.
We will continue to do our best to provide services and programs that help Cape and Islands residents secure housing that is healthy, safe and stable. To that end, we are branching out into economic development efforts so that our clients will have job training and employment opportunities that will lead them to more sustainable lives – and more secure housing.
HAC offers a continuum of housing programs that evolve with the changing needs of the community. In addition to our earliest programs in rental subsidies, HAC offers housing consumer education, training and assistance; emergency and ongoing shelter for individuals and families; homelessness prevention; weatherization and energy rehab; and affordable housing development. In the coming year, our goal is to stabilize our incredibly effective prevention programs, which last year suffered drastic cuts from public sources, and to increase our efforts in helping low- and moderate-income households become more energy efficient – improvements that help them reduce their energy costs as well as their carbon footprint. In the last few years, HAC has developed 318 affordable housing units, with another 100 planned.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about HAC. We hope you like what you learn and that we can count on you to join us in creating a community where everyone has a safe, stable and decent place to live."…(HAC website, http://www.haconcapecod.org/about.htm)
