MAHA educates and mobilizes across Massachusetts to break down barriers to affordable and sustainable homeownership.
MAHA homebuyer class graduates and new SoftSecond homeowners, Jared and Emily Medeiros, were featured in a story that aired on Monday, June 4 on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. Entitled "After the Housing Bust, Revisiting Homeownership," NPR's Chris Arnold visited the Medeiros' in their Sharon home and introduces listeners to the couple and their 11 month old daughter.
Arnold points out that "five years after the market crash of 2007, the desire to own a home is actually very much alive and well. In a recent poll of likely voters by the Woodrow Wilson Center, 84 percent of respondents said homeownership today is just as important as or more important than it was five years ago. Ninety percent still think homeownership is part of the American dream."
MAHA is hitting the links.
For the first-time in our 27 year history (mini-golf doesn't count), MAHA will be co-hosting a benefit golf tournament together with our partners, St. Mark's Area Main Streets and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester. The tournament will take place at the beautiful and historic Franklin Park Golf Course in Dorchester on Monday, June 18.
Registration and breakfast by Au Bon Pain starts at 7:00 AM, shotgun start at 8:00 AM. The format is a Scramble – as long as one of your group can hit the ball straight, you’re in the hunt for the championship! After the round, enjoy the awards lunch with great prizes.
Price is $500 for a foursome (or $125 each for singles). You can register online (coming soon) or call the MAHA office at 617-822-9100.
