Word From Our Tenants

We were tenants of Dartmouth Housing for several years; we can not thank them enough for providing us a safe and beautiful home to raise our family

I have been a part of the Dartmouth Housing program now for four years! It has been such a great experience to have had the support from some of the most wonderful people! Having this opportunity has allowed me to have raised my son in a clean and well-maintained home along with him being able to spend quality time with his sibling on a regular basis! I have lived in my own for 24 years and I must say this has been one of the best experiences I have had with renting thus far!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to the staff and management of Dartmouth Housing!!

Dartmouth Housing has been such a positive and great option for me and my family. Being a single parent, having a low income and the only provider responsible for my family. It’s helped me to be able to care for my family and keep food on the table and a roof over our heads without the stress of the rising cost of living. It’s been a major help and I’m forever grateful.

Dartmouth Housing took my concerns very serious and made it their goal to put my children and I into a safe, clean home where I no longer worry about things like my heat not working! The support I have received from Carrie and the team at Dartmouth Housing has quite literally changed our lives; I can only say positive things about this program and what they have provided for my family and me. I highly recommend this program to any single parents or families struggling to find a landlord (and team of people) that genuinely care. I appreciate the Dartmouth Housing team immensely.
