Page 22 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 9, 2021 LAURA ROSI OF HOUSING FAMILIES HONORED AS COMMONWEALTH HEROINE Rosi nominated by Senator Jason Lewis in recognition of her leadership as CEO of Malden-based housing and homelessness prevention organization B OSTON, MA (JUNE 23, 2021) The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women announced the recognition of Housing Families CEO Laura Rosi as one of the 2021 Commonwealth Heroines of Massachusetts following nomination by Massachusetts Senator Jason Lewis. Laura Rosi is the CEO of Housing Families, a Malden-based housing and homelessness prevention organization that also operates an academic and therapeutic program for children and adults. Housing Families is one of the largest operators of affordable housing and shelter for homeless and very low-income families in Massachusetts. The non-profit organization recently expanded its services by opening its first-ever adult individual shelter in Malden. “I am honored to receive this award and incredibly grateful for Housing Families’ staff and partners who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic to bring services to our shared community. And thank you to Senator Lewis for being a champion of our work and for his part in advocating for the much-needed Malden Individual Shelter,” said Laura Rosi. Rosi joined Housing Families as CEO during a period of difficulty for the community-based organization, and Housing Families has stabilized and thrived under her leadership. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Housing Families’ Homelessness Prevention and Legal Services Program helped approximately 600 families remain housed and administered rental assistance to more than 200 families. “Especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Housing Families and Laura Rosi have been working on the front lines in our community to address homelessness, housing insecurity, and poverty,” said Senator Jason Lewis, who nominated Rosi as a Commonwealth Heroine. “Laura is a tireless leader whose hard work and vision have made incredible impacts in the lives of our neighbors and fellow residents.” Rosi’s passion for tackling issues with housing and homelessness began when she worked as a Housing Advocate at Housing Families, helping families obtain permanent housing. This role provided Rosi with an understanding of the families’ needs at a deeper level and enabled her to identify many systemic inefficiencies and inconsistencies tied to subREAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 TRAN, JIMMY T BUYER2 VIGUE, IAN Danvers Superb awaits in this well maintained home that offers excellent proximity to Major highways of 128, 95, and Route 1.

Each year, the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW) invites all state legislators to nominate one individual from their district to receive recognition at the Commonwealth Heroines event. The recognition is intended to highlight the contributions of women who make a difference in communities across the Commonwealth. These women are not normally recognized by the media but perform acts of kindness every day to help those around them. The MCSW is an independent state agency that was legislatively created in 1998 to advance women of the Commonwealth to full equality in all areas of life and to promote their rights and opportunities. The Commission provides a voice for Massachusetts women and is comprised of 19 members who are appointed by the Governor, Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Caucus of Women Legislators.
