My favorite part about working at NEHDA is the people. I am fortunate to be surrounded by passionate people who are very positive about who they are, what they do, and the community. It is so great to be surrounded by colleagues, residents and stakeholders that not only make me a better individual but they inspire me to do better.

My favorite part of working here at NEHDA is that each day I get a chance to meet new people, have engaging discussions, and generally getting to know them and how we can be of assistance. NEHDA is technically considered my place of employment but I’ve met so many wonderful friends here that it is truly my neighborhood.

Volunteer & Community Engagement Coordinator


My favorite part about working for NEHDA is meeting so many engaged neighbors that want to make a difference. Whether it’s the Hawley-Green Neighbors planning for their community garden, or a group of Park Street neighbors that want to improve the city through beautification, there are always people trying to make positive changes. You can’t find that kind of energy everywhere.

My favorite part about working for NEHDA is the dedication and support of the people, both in the office and outside in the community. Everyone has been welcoming and enthusiastic about my new presence here. NEHDA has an atmosphere where I can dream big and then, more importantly, get the necessary backing to make these dreams a reality.
