Board of Directors & Advisory Board

Our voting board and community advisory groups are comprised of a diverse range of professionals with numerous ties to the communities we serve. They work to help us ensure we provide right-sized rental housing for those who need it most.

Homes First is a federally certified Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) and is actively seeking Board members who represent the low-income community.  This includes members of Boards from Neighborhood Associations who serve the low-income community or those who are members of the low-income community themselves.
