We are a nonprofit run by tenants for tenants. Our mission is to preserve and improve public housing across the state. We are union of over 60 Local Tenant Organizations and we are growing fast.
The problems tenants face locally and statewide are significant. In state public housing, decades of deferred maintenance and underfunding have led to an $8.5 billion backlog of capital needs.
Mass Union believes that those most impacted by a problem should play a leading role in solving it. We are led by tenants who live the problems of public housing 24/7. We provide training, technical assistance, and direct support for individual tenants and Local Tenant Organizations so that tenants have a seat and speak with one voice at decision-making tables.
Advocates estimate that we need 190,000 more units of affordable housing to address the housing crisis in Massachusetts. Mass Union is here to make sure we preserve the precious public housing that we already have.
