17th Annual Walk for Affordable Housing

Our 17th Annual Walk raised $38,000!

HCA’s largest fundraiser of the year, the Walk raises awareness and funds for our Affordable Housing program to house low- and moderate-income families and individuals in need; and HCA’s Homelessness Prevention Program, to provide financial assistance to those in danger of losing their housing. This year HCA raised more than $37,000 in support of the 93 properties under management, and specifically the 57 units in our current development pipeline.

Thank you to all our sponsors and donors!

Special Thanks to our Lead Sponsor, Cambridge Savings Bank!
