Lawrence, MA (July 15, 2015) – The Matilde Gabin Memorial Fund was established today by Bread and Roses Housing. Ms. Gabin was killed in an act of domestic violence and leaves behind two minor children.

Ms. Gabin purchased her home through the Bread and Roses Housing Community Land Trust in 2011. “Matilde worked extremely hard to purchase her first home because she wanted to provide a stable home environment for her children”, said Yesenia A. Gil, Executive Director for Bread and Roses Housing. “It is a tragic loss to our Bread and Roses Housing homeowner community and the larger community.  Our hope now is to provide support to the surviving children and family of Matilde”, said Gil.

Donations to the The Matilde Gabin Memorial Fund can be made to the Bread and Roses Housing Matilde Gabin Memorial Fund at any Enterprise Bank branch. The account number is 798927.

Bread and Roses Housing is a non-profit charitable organization with a mission to alleviate family poverty across generations through sustainable, owner-occupied housing for low income families and to invest in Lawrence neighborhoods supporting and sustaining vibrant and attractive spaces for all residents.
