Headquartered in Malden, Housing Families Inc. is an operator of affordable housing for the homeless and very low-income families in Massachusetts. With the new construction of 20 residential units, offices and community space, Cross Street Housing created a new model for service-rich housing and made reintegrating homeless families into the community a reality.

In addition to the residential units, counseling offices and children’s play areas help to support the children and parents as they grow and heal from the trauma of losing their home. Additionally, a teaching kitchen and tutoring rooms offer space for resident support services as residents acquire the skills and resources necessary to secure permanent homes and jobs.
