A native of the city of Cambridge, Becca Schofield was thrilled to launch her career in affordable housing as a Fellow at Homeowner’s Rehab jumping into local, on-the-ground development work after a year post-graduate school at a funding agency.

At HRI, Becca was soon elbow-deep. HRI’s small size, wide range of projects and collaborative staff afforded Becca  experience from a 6-unit gut rehab to an 86-unit tax credit deal.  The Fellowship added another dimension. “ As a very green project manager, a safe space to ask questions about projects or policy issues, learn about other Fellows’ experiences, and get exposure to affordable housing work from a range of perspectives was so useful,” she commented.

Post-fellowship, Becca accepted a permanent position at HRI.  “My experience as a Fellow was just the beginning! I was – and continue to be – inspired by my mentors, peers, and others working hard to build and preserve affordable housing in Massachusetts and beyond,” she adds.
