The Taunton Housing Authority was established in 1948 to provide safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities in the City of Taunton and we remain passionate about this mission. We are committed to providing opportunities to people who experience barriers to housing because of income, disability or special needs, in an environment that preserves personal dignity, and in a manner that maintains the public trust.
A primary goal of the Taunton Housing Authority is to not only provide housing for low-income households, but also to improve housing and economic opportunities for residents through our programs. We want to help our residents to not only live, but thrive, under our roofs.
We accomplish this goal alongside our mission to deliver high standards of property management, fiscal management and service delivery.
Here For You
The GOALS program works with households in state-funded family housing at the Taunton and Stoughton Housing Authorities. The program is designed to help families improve their economic status by focusing on areas of career, employment, education, financial literacy, and income earnings.
We believe that we should give families, who are willing to work hard, the chance to earn a better life by providing them with the opportunity for public housing and then allowing them to participate in a rigorous program aimed at self-sufficiency. Benefits include increased earned income and the ability to save up to $15,000 with our ESCROW program, life skills training and much more.
