The Boston Home Center is the City’s one-stop shop for homebuyers and homeowners.

The Boston Home Center helps Boston residents purchase, improve, and keep their homes.  We offer training, financial help and counseling to first-time homebuyers, guidance and funding for homeowners for home improvements, and counseling to help families avoid foreclosure.  The Home Center also markets homes developed for income-eligible, first-time homebuyers.
