Karen Fish-Will

Braintree, MA – Affordable Housing and Services Collaborative, Inc. (AHSC) recently announced Karen Fish-Will as a member of its board of directors.

A principal and chairperson of the Peabody Companies, Fish-Will’s career in the multi-disciplines of real estate spans more than 41 years, presently with a focus on the pre-development, development and marketing of newly formed communities, whether created through new construction, the rehabilitation and expansion of existing communities, or the preservation of historic buildings through their adaptive re-use to housing.

In her role, Fish-Will, along with fellow board members, will focus on the organization’s high-level strategy, oversight, and accountability. She has previously served as a board member of the AHSC.

“This is a ‘return engagement’ of sorts and one that I take great pleasure in,” said Fish-Will. “The Peabody Companies and its affiliates Peabody Properties and Peabody Resident Services have a long-standing partnership with AHSC in our mutual mission to provide and preserve affordable housing with services for low-income families, youth, elders, persons with disabilities, as well as special populations including veterans and the homeless.”

“We are excited and gratified to have Karen as a member of our board of directors once again,” said Michael Mattos, president and executive director of AHSC. “Her reputation as a dedicated real estate professional is equal to her passion for the creation and preservation of affordable housing.”
