Board of Directors

Imagine Housing’s Board of Directors is a diverse group of civically engaged local leaders who bring integral perspectives to our mission. The group is reflective of the community we serve – 63% of members are Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and 63% identify as female. 50% of members have experienced housing instability at some point in their life and 63% currently live, or have lived, in an affordable housing community.

You can learn more about individual members below – please feel free to reach out to Aubrey White at aubreyw@imaginehousing.org with questions about the Board and their role with Imagine Housing.
