Leading Edge Real Estate Announces a New Partnership with Housing Families, Inc.
Agents donate with every closed transaction to support their mission of ending family homelessness
Leading Edge Real Estate with 9 offices throughout Greater Boston has partnered with Housing Families, a Malden-based agency that strives to end family homelessness in Massachusetts. Leading Edge Real Estate agents will donate a portion of their commission with every closed transaction to support Housing Families’ mission of ending family homelessness.
Leading Edge kicked off the partnership by presenting a $2,500 donation to Housing Families, during their annual agent recognition event on March 21st at the Row Hotel in Assembly Square.
“We at Housing Families are so grateful and honored to be partnering with Leading Edge,” said Laura Rosi, Esq., Interim CEO and Director of Homelessness Prevention & Advocacy. “Partnerships like this are the only way that we will make progress in ending homelessness. Housing Families is looking forward to this collaboration and the positive impact it will have on the families and youth we serve in the Greater Boston area.” Housing Families provides Emergency Shelter, Affordable Housing, Homeless Prevention Services, and a GREAT Youth & Families Program to homeless and at-risk families in Greater Boston.
“Leading Edge is excited to partner with Housing Families,” said Eileen Hamblin, Broker/Owner at Leading Edge Real Estate. “Supporting their efforts to help at-risk and homeless families navigate the process of getting back on their feet and into affordable homes where they can feel safe and protected will make a huge impact in their lives.” For over 30 years, Housing Families has helped over 5,000 homeless families. In 2018, HFI prevented 275 families from being evicted, placed 149 families in emergency shelter, and helped 836 families successfully retain long-term housing. In 2019, the organization will serve at least 900 families experiencing homelessness in the Greater Boston area.
