Falmouth Housing Corporation

FALMOUTH, MA

Developing affordable housing is never easy, but it is particularly challenging on Cape Cod, which faces constraints in the availability of land and high housing and labor costs.

The Falmouth Housing Corporation (FHC) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable corporation originally established in Falmouth, Massachusetts to deal with a broad spectrum of affordable housing and homelessness issues. FHC’s main mission is to develop compassionate solutions to housing and homelessness problems with families – especially those with children – living in Falmouth and the surrounding communities of Cape Cod.

 The Falmouth Housing Corporation is working to address the severe need for affordable housing and services for families and seniors. FHC has developed over 198 units in Falmouth by working with the local partners, leveraging state and local resources and managing costs effectively. In addition, FHC has developed space for the Falmouth Service Center, a food pantry and community gardens.

In 2002, Bob Murray the Executive Director of the Falmouth Housing Corporation and the Falmouth Housing Authority identified a 2.79 acre site on Main Street in Falmouth. FHC saw the possibility of creating a significant number of affordable rental units that includes 58 one and two bedroom units and commercial space.

 FHC continued to look for opportunities to purchase sites on Cape Cod and with the help of Life Initiative was able to develop 24 units in North Falmouth and then helped with developing another 39 Units in Falmouth for those who are 55 an older while restoring the second oldest school house in Falmouth.

 In 2013 the founder Bob Murray sadly passed away and the new administration of FHC with the Board of Directors vowed to continue this vital work. With the support of the Affordable Housing Trust, The Cape Cod Five, Town of Falmouth, Community Preservation Funds (CPA), Barnstable County HOME Consortium, Massachusetts Housing Partnership, various local charitable foundations, private donors and the development team at Affirmative Investments the dream of 11 units in Woods Hole is coming to fruition. In September of 2015 the first tenants will be moved into this incredible new project.

 FHC plans to continue developing affordable housing and addressing homelessness needs in our community.
