Please bear with us as we adapt to this rapidly evolving emergency.
As the world races to put in place provisions to protect public health in the wake of COVID-19, government leaders are attempting to mitigate the financial hardship from this crisis. Governments and banks in Spain, Italy, France, England and Canada have instituted various forms of mortgage payment suspensions or freezes ranging from one month to six months.
Join us for a fun and exciting annual meeting on Monday, December 16th as we celebrate an active and fruitful 2019. There will be dinner, dessert and a fond farewell to our retiring HomeSafe program manager Jorge Casas after 18 years of outstanding service to low- and moderate-income homeowners. We will also be congratulating MAHA board member Kenzie Bok on her recent election to the Boston City Council.
Our congratulations to Kenzie Bok on winning the District 8 City Council seat yesterday. Kenzie becomes the first MAHA Board member to win elective office in the organization's 34 year history. Kenzie was a leader in the effort to pass the Community Preservation Act in Boston in 2016 and campaigned on a platform of increasing affordable housing opportunities in her district and throughout the city. We look forward to working with her in 2020.
