Our Impact

When we build and invest in quality homes for individuals and families, we create thriving communities. That’s why for the last 30 years, we have developed and financed environmentally, socially and economically responsible projects for low and moderate income people across northern New England.

Resident Impact

Evernorth Connections launched in January 2016. The goal of the Connections program is to improve the lives of affordable housing residents through initiatives to address food security, broadband access, and community-building, among others. The Connections program places residents at the center of our decision making by engaging them in conversations and with surveys to hear directly from them about their challenges and successes. We share the information gathered with housing and social service partners to better tailor our services to the distinct needs of each community. Our goal is to work with partners to bring these services to residents across all of northern New England.
