The Caleb Group is a regional nonprofit affordable housing organization founded in 1992 by Warren and Joan Sawyer and Debbie Sawyer Nutter to create and provide well-managed, secure affordable housing for people with low household incomes.
The founders also believed that everyone, including residents of affordable housing, need resources and support beyond stable housing to thrive and do well. The first Caleb property was acquired and opened in 1994. Since that time The Caleb Group has steadily grown to include 36 properties, which are home to approximately 4,900 people. The Caleb Group continues to grow, expanding the portfolio and the number of affordable homes available with each passing year. The Caleb Group properties in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
As part of the organization’s mission to provide additional assistance beyond housing, each community has a community center and an on-site resident service coordinator. The resident service coordinator fosters a sense of community within the property, provides educational and enrichment programs, and connects residents to services in the wider community.
