New Lease Welcomes Southern Middlesex Opportunity Council!

New Lease is working with partners in the greater Framingham area to begin pairing homeless families to affordable homes.  Our current affordable housing owners have dedicated properties in the Metro-West area, and New Lease has trained SMOC on our model.  We look forward to opening up the Metro-West region and reducing family homelessness with our new partners!
