Braintree, MA – Kate Swope, director of resident services with Peabody Properties, a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms, was a featured presenter at recent webinars hosted by the Commonwealth.
Swope joined representatives from MassHousing, the Department of Housing & Community Development, the Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation (CEDAC) and the Department of Elder Affairs to provide information on the first tier of Phase 2 vaccine deployment during a webinar titled, “Affordable Senior Housing Vaccine Rollout Virtual Information Session.”
Swope also participated in a second webinar, “How to Prepare for your First FPPP COVID Vaccine Clinic,” hosted by Emily Cooper, chief housing officer, Executive Office of Elder Affairs, and planned in collaboration with CEDAC and MassHousing.
The first tier of Phase 2 is set to begin later this month and continue through March. Residents and staff of public and private low-income and affordable housing are now included in the first tier of Phase 2.
“Peabody Properties has been a great partner to CEDAC and other state agencies as we collaborated on COVID vaccination strategy for low-income elders living in affordable housing,” said Sara Barcan, director of housing development at CEDAC. “Kate Swope has been incredibly generous, sharing her time and experiences to assist other affordable senior housing operators in navigating their own vaccination clinics.”
Swope has overseen Phase 1 vaccine clinics at communities managed by the Peabody Companies.
