About the Planning Office for Urban Affairs
Established in 1969 by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, the Planning Office for Urban Affairs, Inc. (POUA) is a non-profit developer and social justice organization that creates vibrant communities through the development of high quality affordable and mixed-income housing where all people can live with dignity and respect in homes they can afford. As one of the leading non-profit developers in the region, POUA has created nearly 3,000 units of housing that have provided homes for more than 11,000 people. This represents new residential developments with financing in excess of $600 million. The emphasis of the Office is not on numbers, though, but on having a qualitative impact on the harsh reality of housing deprivation for poor and working class families, the elderly, disabled persons and others in need of decent, affordable homes.
