About Us

Housing Support Inc. was incorporated in 1990. The founders first endeavor was the purchase a building to shelter women and their children located in Amesbury Ma. In 1994, the bylaws were changed to broaden the scope of the agency and to add community leaders to the board.

Since then, the corporation has developed an additional eight properties in the communities of Haverhill, Lawrence, and Amesbury, in Massachusetts and Kingston, NH which offer sober housing, supportive housing to homeless and/or disabled individuals and veterans. The projects were successfully completed despite challenges presented by difficult areas for the development and complex methods of competitive financing and public grant awards.

These projects testify to a strong record by HSI in its ability to acquire property and develop it into affordable housing through public grants, public equity financing, market financing, and private donations. HSI has worked with The MA Land Bank, Community Economic Development and Assistance Corporation, Federal HOME Loan Bank, DHCD, DPH, DMH, DDS, MA Housing Finance Agency, Municipal Community Development Offices, MA Housing, North Shore HOME Consortium, Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Veterans Administration, NH Housing Finance Agency and numerous local and regional housing authorities.

In 2020, the Board expanded HSI's geographical interests to include Essex County, MA and southern Rockingham County, NH

Financial Partners include the Department of Housing and Urban Development, DHCD, Newburyport Bank, Pentucket Bank, CEDAC, Mass Housing, Mass Development, North Shore HOME Consortium, and the Federal HOME Loan Bank.
