South Middlesex Non-Profit Housing Corporation (SMOC Housing Corporation)


In 1986, SMOC created a wholly owned subsidiary, the South Middlesex Non-Profit Housing Corporation, to address the need for safe, decent and affordable housing for low-income families, individuals and disabled adults. The chief mission of the SMOC Housing Corporation is to preserve and improve existing affordable housing and to develop new housing choices for low- and moderate- income residents. The SMOC Housing Corporation is a full-service real estate organization that performs all property and asset management functions including 24/7 property services, housing operations, capital planning, marketing, tenant relations, leasing, contract compliance, licensing, consulting, construction and project management, financing strategies and technical assistance. SMOC’s Housing Corporation has demonstrated an imaginative approach to regional housing needs by integrating human services with rental and program units serving individuals and families while providing safe, decent and affordable housing choices for area households.
