Lowell L. Richards 111 Champion in Housing Award

  • November 14, 2022

Our President & CEO, Frederica M. Williams, was presented with the Lowell L. Richards 111 Champion in Housing Award by our partner, Metro Housing Boston. In our primary service area in Roxbury, a 2017 Boston Public Health Commission report noted that over 82% of residents in Roxbury were renters and 56% paid more than 30% of their income to rent. The rates in Roxbury have contributed to a high level of housing instability for families and student transiency in the public schools, and we know the pandemic has widened the gap. Thank you Metro Housing Boston for your mission to mobilize wide-ranging resources to provide innovative and personalized services that lead families and individuals to housing stability, economic security, and an improved quality of life. We are grateful to have you as a supporter of our mission is to serve as a center of excellence that provides high quality, and accessible health care and social services that achieve health equity, social justice, and the economic well-being of our diverse populations.
