CHAPA Mourns the Loss of our First Director, Bob McKay - January 24, 2017

CHAPA mourns the loss of our first Director, Bob McKay, who passed away at age 91. Bob was a passionate advocate for affordable housing and low income tenants throughout his long and distinguished career. He was key to launching the affordable housing movement in Boston and throughout the state in the mid-1960s. A consummate networker, he kept CHAPA at the forefront of a changing housing arena for 20 years. Many former and current CHAPA members owe their involvement in the field to Bob. He will be missed.
