Since 1987, Bread & Roses Housing has been a leading provider of sustainable homes and affordable homeownership opportunities to low-income families in Greater Lawrence. Named after the massive “Bread and Roses Strike” organized by Lawrence millworkers in 1912, BRH embodies the hope, economic justice, and human dignity that the workers struggled to achieve. 

Our mission is to:

  • Create and preserve affordable housing opportunities for low-income families
  • Support families' goals of self-sufficiency, education, and empowerment
  • Improve economically distressed neighborhoods
  • Advocate for the needs of very low-income households within the Greater Lawrence area

Bread & Roses Housing’s home ownership opportunities are among the most accessible and affordable in New England. Our community land trust model is a progressive solution to community change in the area of affordable housing.
