CAMBRIDGE, MA, October 11, 2021 – The Schochet Companies today announced that Rindge Associates Limited Partnership has executed an agreement with the City of Cambridge to preserve as affordable 504 housing units at Fresh Pond Apartments.
After a more than a year of a prohibition on evictions by state and federal government, the “final” extension is set to expire on Saturday, July 31 – and activists have warned of a wave of coming evictions, likely to be followed by an uptick in homelessness.
As a result of a broad effort of The Schochet Companies staff, LeadingAge (@LeadingAge), government entities (ri.gov, mass.gov, @masshousing, @rihousing) and CVS, more than 2,300 people were vaccinated at 13 properties owned or managed by Schochet in recent weeks, including more than 2,000 residents, 61 staff and nearly 200 volunteers and PCAs (Primary Care Assistants) working with elderly residents.
This includes properties owned by the Retirement Housing Foundation (@RHF) and properties co-owned by Jonathan Rose Companies (@JonathanRoseCompanies).
