HOU Founder David Connelly

“Housing Opportunities Unlimited (HOU) was founded at a time when families living in affordable housing needed quality services in communities that were about to undergo revitalization in the Greater Boston area. HOU understands the impact that these changes have on families – many of whom are already experiencing a level of deteriorating conditions, both physical and social in their communities.

Our successful early efforts have led to a number of other housing authorities and affordable housing developers seeking HOU services. It continues to be HOU’s primary objective to provide quality relocation and resident services to the people of these communities and successfully meet our clients’ needs and deadlines. After all these years, the motto of our company rings true that indeed the resident makes the difference.”

HOU Owner and Principal

The Resident Makes the Difference

HOU’s mission is to ensure that the residents affected by the revitalization of their community are treated fairly, in accordance with compliance guidelines, to experience minimal physical and emotional stress during this process. Simultaneously, HOU ensures that the clients’ projects are completed in a timely and cost-effective manner.

HOU's skilled and professional team has expertise in a wide range of relocation and resident support services.
