HOPE Partnership is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing
affordable workforce housing opportunities in Middlesex County and along the shoreline.
Established in 2003 with the support of the United Way to address the shortage of affordable workforce housing in our area, HOPE is focused on finding housing solutions for low-income people who suffer disproportionately from the housing crisis.
Our philosophy is to collaborate with town government, builders, and other private partners to build housing that is attractive, sustainable and appropriate to the surrounding neighborhood. It is these partnerships that form the dynamic that make this process successful.
Board of Directors
The HOPE Partnership Board of Directors is an active and working board.
With minimal staff, HOPE Partnership could not create positive impact in our region without the expertise and time commitment of dedicated Board members.
Since its inception, HOPE Partnership has attracted Board members and volunteers who represent a broad segment of the community with various skill sets. Past and present Board members have included engineers, architects, developers, business owners, human service providers, financial services professionals, attorneys and many others representing diverse perspectives.
