Housing costs you can live with

Too many people are struggling to afford a decent place to live. As the need for housing has grown, Action Inc. has responded by developing our own affordable units while advocating for low-cost, safe housing for our community. We currently own five properties with several apartments for formerly homeless individuals and families. Harbor Village, our new apartment community located at 206 Main Street, has 30 new affordable units and opened in July of 2021.

Affordable Housing Units

Action Inc. owns several multi-unit homes that offer affordable housing for individuals and families. Since buying our first building on Prospect Street in 2004, we’ve worked to purchase or build even more sites in Gloucester. These include four units connected to our shelter on Main Street, four apartments homes for previously homeless families on Marsh Street, an additional multi-unit home on Prospect Street, as well as the 30 new units downtown that comprise Harbor Village.

Harbor Village


Located on historic Main Street, Harbor Village offers 30 affordable apartment homes for individuals and families in Gloucester. Along with our partners North Shore Community Development Coalition, our goal is to provide the Cape Ann community with high-quality, energy efficient housing units without the high cost.

1, 2, and 3 bedroom units are now available! Please see the Harbor Village website for more information regarding rent, income limits, and how to apply. You can also contact Peabody Properties at 781-794-1000 or email harborvillage@peabodyproperties.com.
