BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (January 2, 2020) – NorthMarq’s Boston regional office recently awarded Sage Housing, Inc. with a $5,000 grant as part of its mission to source public and private funds to build and sustain vibrant, healthy affordable housing communities through resident collaboration and community partnerships.
Sage Housing Inc., a 501© (3) Not For Profit Corporation, is driven by real estate and community development professionals with many years of experience managing, developing and revitalizing affordable housing. The organization provides expertise and support to developers, owners and managers throughout the lifespan of a property to ensure compliance with all federal, state and local funding programs.
“Sage Housing, Inc. was created to provide affordable and supportive services for those in need,” said Michael Chase, managing director of NorthMarq’s Boston office. “Some of those services include sober housing, recovery centers and safe have shelters. We’re happy to help support their mission and the work they do for our communities.”
Recently, the organization secured a property in Greenfield, Massachusetts, and is collaborating with GAAMHA to complete a six-bedroom house for women in early recovery. This project is emblematic of the organizations commitment to work with local advocates and the housing community to identify training opportunities and provide jobs to people in recovery.
The Boston office’s grant is part of NorthMarq’s larger initiative to support organizations addressing homelessness and affordable housing. NorthMarq awarded grants to 12 organizations in 11 different cities across the county. Check out the story here.
