  • For several years we’ve had a vacancy in a small, detached apartment on our property. Occasionally, an unwanted squatter would move in and cause trouble, but lately it’s been available. We’ve been looking for a very specific type to move in – relatively quiet during the day, maybe works nights, comfortable with small spaces – at less than one square foot, this apartment isn’t right for just any family. Finally, last week, we got the tenant we were looking for – an Eastern Screech Owl.

  • Broad Reach Healthcare CEO Bill Bogdanovich has been named chair of Housing Assistance Corporation's board of directors. The region’s leading provider of affordable housing helps secure homes for more than 6,000 families on the Cape and Islands.
