There were plenty of good things that happened in Cambridge over the past year. As Cambridge’s long-term housing crisis continues to burn, consuming our lower- and middle-income residents in the process, let’s stop to appreciate the ingenuity, savvy and flexibilitydisplayed by the Cambridge Housing Authority.
If you have an MTW Section 8 voucher from the Cambridge Housing Authority, you are invited to apply for the Compass Financial Stability and Savings (FSS+) Program. If eligible, you may have the opportunity to save a portion of your rent each month and get free personalized financial coaching to help you achieve your financial goals, build assets, and become more financially secure. Attend our orientation and workshop to find out more!
This Way Ahead is a rigorous, work readiness training program for youth between the ages of 16 and 24. Through a partnership with Gap Inc., Cambridge Housing Authority offers intensive customer service workshops led by program coordinators who teach basic employment skills, as well as skills specific to the retail environment. Participants receive a modest stipend for participating in the workshops series.
