Mission Statement

Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance (MAHA) educates and mobilizes individuals and communities across Massachusetts to break down barriers to affordable and sustainable homeownership.

Background Statement

MAHA was formed in the fall of 1985 to work for solutions to the problem of rapidly increasing housing costs across the state, through both community organizing and community education programs. In 1987, MAHA began its first efforts to organize a Home Buyers Union (HBU) -- a grassroots group made up of urban low and moderate-income (LMI) tenants who wanted to become first-time home buyers.
One of our first campaigns was in response to the 1989 Federal Reserve Bank of Boston study that documented racial disparities in mortgage lending. The two-year long community campaign resulted in a below-market, affordable mortgage program for low and moderate-income first-time buyers, now known as the ONE Mortgage (formerly SoftSecond). This same campaign, led by MAHA together with the Community Investment Coalition, resulted in the formation of the Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation (MHIC), Massachusetts Community and Banking Council (MCBC), nine new bank branches and 40 new ATMs in low and moderate-income neighborhoods, and the creation of a low-cost Basic Banking program.
MAHA's affordable mortgage campaign sought to reverse almost two decades of disinvestment in such Boston neighborhoods as Dorchester, Mattapan and Roxbury. Today, the ONE Mortgage program remains the state's most affordable mortgage product. It has made it possible for more than 20,000 lower income families to buy their first home in Massachusetts. And the program has made an impact on racial disparities in mortgage lending. Since 2004, fifty-one percent of ONE/SoftSecond borrowers have been persons of color.
From 2000 to 2007 during the height of the sub-prime lending crisis, MAHA led another landmark campaign, one that resulted in the passage of first-in-the-nation community reinvestment requirements for independent mortgage companies. MAHA also worked closely with the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations (MACDC) in the late 1990s to pass legislation that resulted in disclosure from property and casualty insurance companies and a mandated community investment fund from both life and property and casualty insurers.
And in 2016 MAHA led the formation of Yes for a Better Boston, a broad-based coalition of non-profit organizations that organized a successful referendum campaign with 74% of Boston voters saying yes to the Community Preservation Act. CPA funds will mean $20 million each year in Boston for affordable housing, parks, and historic preservation.

Impact Statement

•Reached agreement with Santander for $265 million in ONE Mortgage lending over the next five years
•Reached agreement with One United Bank, the nation's largest Black-owned bank, to join the ONE Mortgage program
•Graduated 2,033 people from pre- and post-purchase classes throughout the state in FY17
•Staffed the continuation of the Yes for a Better Boston effort to ensure equity and transparency as Boston implements the Community Preservation Act including hosting the first citywide forum in Franklin Park to discuss community representation on the Community Preservation Committee
•Reached more than 3,000 voters in Boston municipal elections to received pledges to vote. Since 2003, our pledged voters turn out at a rate 20 percentage points higher than city-wide turnouts.
•Negotiate with public officials and developers for higher percentages of affordable homes in Dorchester and other neighborhoods
•Ensure "lion's share" of Boston CPA funds is used to address affordable housing and city provides comprehensive reports on how the money is spent including a focus on underserved neighborhoods
•Expand commitments to the ONE Mortgage program
•Graduate more than 2,000 homebuyers and homeowners across the state
•Activate more than 1,500 residents to take action on an issue priority
•Establish new MAHA Homes real estate venture as earned income strategy

Needs Statement

MAHA has steadily increased its visibility throughout eastern Massachusetts graduating homebuyers from 211 different communities in the past two years and working with activists in both urban and suburban settings across the region.  But it is a big region (population of over 4 million) and we need resources to better reach low and moderate income people through partnerships and increased outreach. 
•Sponsor a homebuyer class for $2,500.  Sponsor a homebuyer for $250.
•Sponsor a Get Out The Vote effort for $10,000. 
•Support a community organizer for one year for $60,000. For one month at $5,000.
•Help make our homeownership classroom truly interactive with smart boards and instant feedback remotes for $25,000.
•Volunteer at our 10th annual Taste of Dorchester (April 26, 2018).

CEO Statement

Homeownership remains the centerpiece of the American Dream and, in Massachusetts, MAHA has been the keeper of the flame for low and moderate income residents and households of color.  No organization in Massachusetts in the last 32 years has done more to break down barriers to affordable and sustainable homeownership.  Our model of education and organizing is unique and has worked to empower local residents and engage financial institutions in the economic vitality of lower income neighborhoods for nearly 30 years.  We have challenged AND partnered with banks, insurers, and mortgage companies.  We will continue to lead the non-profit community on issues of community reinvestment across the Commonwealth.
We are proud that the mortgage program negotiated by MAHA members in 1989 is still around and has made a successful transition in this post-mortgage lending crisis world. The program has been adapted - two mortgages are now one - but the focus on affordability remains the same. We also remain committed to closing the disturbingly large racial homeownership gap in our state. Massachusetts ranks 49th in the gap between our white homeownership rate (69%) and our combined rate for Black, Latino, and Asian households (31%). The ONE Mortgage program is the only significant mortgage program in Massachusetts that is closing that gap. And MAHA remains committed to engaging more lenders and reaching more underserved borrowers in the coming years.

Board Chair Statement

In 2004, I bought my home in Brockton thanks to MAHA and its mortgage program. It was a dream come true and made me want to give back and help others achieve that same dream. I started volunteering with MAHA and joined the board in 2007 and was elected president in December 2013.
Homeownership is personal. Growing up in Barbados, I watched and lived through the horror of losing our family home due to my father's gambling problem. He literally gambled our house away. I vowed that someday, I would buy my own home and after moving to Boston, going to school and getting a good job and finding MAHA, I was able to do just that.
What came after was a surprise. My oldest daughter was able to use the same mortgage program that I did to buy her own home with her husband and two children just a few years later. She accomplished this in her 20's, years earlier than I was able to but she credits my example as a prime motivator for her.  It is great to watch my grandsons grow up in a home of their own - and they so enjoy visiting "Nan" and running around my home.

Grassroots Organizing for Secure Families, Stable Neighborhoods

MAHA staffs a grassroots Homebuyers Union (HBU) in Boston whose members work together to challenge banks and elected officials to increase investment in affordable home-ownership. We win housing resources and community investment agreements through the recruitment, education, mobilization, and leadership development of our members. We teach the information and skills people need to lead campaigns, gain allies, work with the legislature, and negotiate investment agreements with bankers and other financial services leaders. Through meetings, phone banks, postcard and letter writing campaigns, and large scale community actions involving more than 1,000 people, we connect our constituency to the elected officials and industry executives who make decisions. We increase our efficacy by registering new voters, educating people on where candidates stand on key housing issues, and turning these educated voters out to the polls.

Program Success Monitored By 

MAHA uses both quantitative and qualitative evaluation tools to track successes and areas for improvement. Our strategy involves analysis of both policy outcomes and organization building metrics.


1. Twice each year MAHA organizers review: the total number of volunteers who have participated during the last 6 months, the number of NEW volunteers who participated, the number of people who’ve been trained in new skills, and the number that have taken on new roles.


2. MAHA sets goals for voter registration and mobilization each fall. We track the number of voters registered, the number contacted through our classes and phone banks, the number who pledge to vote, and the number of our pledges that go to the polls. election.


3. MAHA continually tracks progress toward new lending agreements. We monitor each bank’s closings under our agreements and intervene if a lender falls behind.

Examples of Program Success 

Thadine Brown attended her first MAHA meeting in 2009. When it was her turn to speak, she told her home buying story. She talked about her daughter who had recently lost her dad, and the heavy responsibility she felt as a single parent. She told us the SoftSecond program had helped save her life by enabling her to have a home where she and her daughter felt safe and secure.


Thadine later told her story to 1,000 people at a MAHA action. She ended by addressing the bankers and politicians who were present, saying “It is important that you understand that in our communities being able to afford a home gives us a sense of hope and purpose. I ask that you do not take that away.”


When we met Thadine, she was brimming with passion and the qualities to be an effective organizer and advocate for her community. MAHA introduced her to other leaders who were learning and working together. She has remained actively involved, joined MAHA’s Board of Directors in 2012 and was elected clerk in 2014.

Homebuyer and Homeowner Education and Counseling

MAHA's "Homeownership University" features three courses: Introduction to Homebuying; Homeowner 201; and Condo owner 202. We also provide one-on-one pre-purchase counseling and foreclosure prevention services for ONE/SoftSecond homeowners.  
Introduction to Homebuying is a comprehensive 12-hour class that has presentations from a lender, home inspector, real estate agent, insurance agent, and attorney.  MAHA has graduated 14,861 people from 480 classes since 1991.
Our post-purchase classes, launched in 1996, are unique in the industry and include presentations on budgeting, understanding your home, landlord/tenant issues, and crime and fire safety.  MAHA has negotiated HomeSafe discounts for graduates from ten leading property insurance companies including Liberty Mutual, Travelers, MetLife, Arbella, Safety and others.  Since 1996, we have graduated 11,181 people from 571 classes.
Budget  $475,000.00
Category  Housing, General/Other Housing Counseling
Population Served Adults Families Minorities
Program Short-Term Success 
In 2018, we expect to graduate 2,000 people from our Homeownership University classes with 850 graduates from our Introduction to Homebuying class. At least 25% of these pre-purchase graduates will buy a home within 12 months of graduation and will have lower rates of delinquency and foreclosure than the average Massachusetts homeowner.
Our post-purchase grads will access homeowners insurance discounts and will have lower insurance loss ratios than Massachusetts homeowners as a whole.
Program Long-Term Success  Our long-term goal is to narrow the racial homeownership gap in Massachusetts by educating and counseling Black and Latino homebuyers and to help these same homebuyers achieve sustainable homeownership. We track delinquency and foreclosure rates of affordable mortgage programs and publicly available homeownership rates.
Program Success Monitored By  We will track success rates by measuring how many graduates request their homebuying certificate in order to access a mortgage program or downpayment assistance program. We track delinquency statistics on a quarterly basis through the Massachusetts Housing Partnership and we periodically request loss ratio data from participating HomeSafe insurance companies
Examples of Program Success  MAHA has graduated over 29,000 people from our classes since 1991, the most of any non-profit in the state.  Based on data from the city of Boston and the Massachusetts Housing Partnership, our graduates have lower delinquency and foreclosure rates than homeowners in general.  

Statewide Homebuyers Action Network (HAN)

HAN brings MAHA’s unique model of engaging and organizing homebuyers to homeownership classes throughout the state. Through partnerships with 18 homebuyer counseling organizations that have joined HAN, we reach a far greater number of homebuyers, engage many more people, and have a larger impact. 


HAN is enabling us to build a broader base in Boston by giving our own graduates more ways to participate and communicate online. We are challenging our members to engage their friends and families through our new website and Facebook, as well as our more traditional organizing channels. We are also involving graduates of other homebuyer counseling groups in Boston who are signing up for HAN at their classes.


In addition, we are building a statewide network by signing up new groups that work with key constituencies. We are able to communicate and involve graduates of HAN partner groups in all corners of Massachusetts who sign up to join our online information and alert list.

Budget  $110,000.00
Category  Housing, General/Other Home Barrier Removal
Population Served Other Economic Level Families Minorities

Program Success Monitored By 

As with its grassroots project, MAHA uses both quantitative and qualitative evaluation tools to track successes and areas for improvement. Our strategy involves analysis of both policy outcomes and organization building metrics.


1. MAHA organizers track organizational involvement. This includes: the number of organizations that have formally joined HAN, the number of home buyer counselors who regularly send HAN interest postcards with the names and contact information for their interested graduates, the number of organizations that participate in grassroots lobbying campaigns (such as for a new lending commitment, or state funding for the SoftSecond Program)


2. MAHA tracks the number of individuals who participate in online campaign activities.


3. MAHA tracks progress toward new lending agreements and state funding for homeownership programs, and analyses the role that joint action by our HAN members plays in each campaign.

Examples of Program Success 
Friday, June 13, 2014 – Governor Deval Patrick today stood with MAHA President Esther Maycock-Thorne and recent MAHA homeowner Angelina Goncalves to announce new support for homeownership opportunities for first-time homebuyers, including access to reduced-cost mortgages through various lenders.  The announcement comes as 26 mortgage lenders and over 1,000 first time homebuyers have signed on and utilized the MA Homeownership Compact, a commitment among lenders to originate mortgage loans to first-time home buyers.
Just a few weeks ago, Angelina Goncalves and her fiance bought their first home in Dorchester through Santander Bank using the ONE Mortgage program. "When I came to Boston from Cape Verde at the age of eighteen, I had two dreams - to graduate from college and to own my own home." Angelina graduated from UMass Boston with a degree in finance and bought a two family home in March, less than a year after graduating from a MAHA homebuyer class.

Yes for a Better Boston

      Immediately after the passage of the Community Preservation Act in Boston in 2016, MAHA and its allies agreed to keep the broad based Yes for a Better Boston effort together. We will work in coalition to ensure Boston's CPA process is inclusive, transparent, and address racial and economic inequities in the city.      
Budget  $190,000.00
Category  Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy, General/Other
Population Served Adults Families Minorities
Program Short-Term Success  YBB organized the successful 2016 referendum campaign that resulted in 74% of Boston voters supporting the adoption of the Community Preservation Act.
Program Long-Term Success  We will be working to ensure diversity and community representation on the Community Preservation Committee which will recommend spending. And we will organize support for grassroots proposals in all three funding areas and ensure that funding decisions seek to address long-standing racial and economic disparities.
Program Success Monitored By  Our 15 member Yes for a Better Boston steering committee is committed to monitoring the success of CPA implementation in Boston.
Examples of Program Success  Christine Poff, former executive director of the Franklin Park Coalition, was named as the city's first Community Preservation director. Christine is well-known in Boston neighborhoods as someone deeply committed to inclusion and diversity. She has been an excellent partner with YBB during the first several months of implementation.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
