B’nai B’rith Housing in Boston has honored Karen Fish-Will, CEO of Peabody Properties, with the 2015 Distinguished Achievement Award.
Susan Gittelman, B’nai B’rith Housing executive director said: “Karen is extremely deserving of this award. Her passion and devotion to affordable housing and to creating community are second to none.”
Creating safe and affordable homes, where seniors can age in place, has been a mission of B’nai B’rith International for nearly 50 years.
B'nai B'rith is the largest national Jewish sponsor of federally subsidized housing for the elderly in the United States with 42 buildings in 27 communities.
Working directly with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, B'nai B'rith makes rental apartments available for senior citizens with limited incomes. B'nai B'rith senior housing is open to all qualified individuals as defined by HUD, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, handicap or national origin.
