“The property is clean and well maintained for as long as we have lived here. The maintenance staff always come promptly with a phone call. The administrative staff go out of their way to be helpful. Friendly neighbors and nice neighborhood.”
“Hingham Housing Authority has played a major role in building the foundation on which I stand. When I first started the FSS program my goals were small; though at the time they felt like hurdles. Each year I was pleased to announce how I had met my goals, and slowly they grew. With the guidance and support of HHA and the FSS program I have both graduated college and started my own business. I look forward to the day that I can announce to them my plans to be a homeowner! There is no better investment than the one you make in yourself. The FSS program will guide you along the way!”
