    On December 11th, more than 50 CREW Boston members participated in the Holiday Gift and Craft Party to benefit Carolina Hill Shelter.  CREW members purchased gifts for 17 families residing at Carolina Hill, who without CREW’s assistance would not have received gifts this holiday season. Additionally, CREW members generously donated gift cards at the November 27th luncheon which were distributed to the Moms and Dads at the shelter.  CREW members also crafted hand-made ornaments for the families.  New leggings and sweatpants were collected to help the Shelter cloth future residents who often arrive with only the clothes they are wearing. The outpouring of CREW’s generosity was overwhelming and truly appreciated by Carolina Hill.  The Holiday Gift and Craft Party, hosted by the Community Involvement Committee, also provided a great networking opportunity to socialize with other CREW members, as well as enjoy pizza and wine.

  • Discussion on Stabilization & Redevelopment of Hurricane-Devastated Puerto Rico

    Discussion on Stabilization & Redevelopment of Hurricane-Devastated Puerto Rico

    To kick off our 2018-2019 series of brown bag lunches, the CREW Boston Housing and Community Development Committee, led by members Kimberly Martin-Epstein and Yanel de Angel discussed recovery efforts related to the devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico.  We were able to conference in Alex Blenkinsopp from Senator Elizabeth Warren’s office. He gave an overview of the PR situation and Senator Warren's efforts to provide aid, including a bill proposed to offer $146 billion dollars in aid to Puerto Rico. While not progressing legislatively, this bill changed the tenor of the conversation in Washington. This is the first time a US territory in economic crisis has concurrently been hit by a natural disaster.

As jobs moved elsewhere and resources remained hard to come by, these midsize urban centers faced a number of challenges in maintaining their prosperity. Mass Housing has a longstanding commitment to the revitalization of Massachusetts' Gateway Cities and have committed both resources and grant money towards development. At our October luncheon, we took the conversation outside of Boston, to hear from city leadership about the real estate and development investment going on in some of the Commonwealth’s designated Gateway Cities
