RCAP Solutions serves as the regional Housing Consumer Education Center (HCEC) for Worcester County and is the first point of contact for people in need of housing counseling, supportive programs, and resources. We assist tenants, landlords, homebuyers, and homeowners with a myriad of housing and homeownership needs.
We offer homeownership support before, during, and after you buy a house. We provide education for first-time buyers as well as support for new and existing homeowners.
We can act as a neutral third party for tenants and landlords who may be at a disagreement. If you have an issue related to your rights and responsibilities as either a landlord or a tenant, we’re here to help.
We offer group classes and one-on-one counseling and can assist you in developing a budget that is built on your current financial picture and help you work towards your financial goals.
We can help people with applying for emergency funding, gaining access to mental health and substance use centers, and obtaining public benefits, legal help, and a myriad of other referrals to community resources.
We offer many trainings which are designed to support and educate tenants, landlords, potential homebuyers, and homeowners residing in Central Massachusetts.

“Working with RCAP was a game changer during our first-time homebuyer experience! The team walked beside us every step of the way. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive to our needs.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to RCAP Solutions for all they have done for me. Without the help granted to me from your agency I would not be able to be where I am today. Getting the help enabled me to get ahead and become an independent single mom. Today I am a homeowner and my children and I could not be any happier!”
