The Housing Assistance Council would like to thank Jeff Mosley for over nine years of service to rural America at HAC. As the Director of HAC’s Training and Technical Assistance Division, he helped guide thousands of person-hours and millions of dollars to develop communities in need. Jeff leaves for New Zealand as a 2018 Ian Axford Fellow in Public Policy, a prestigious opportunity. Jeff’s work will focus on how underserved communities access capital for developing affordable housing and community facilities, while also looking at capacity building support resources for community-led organizations.
HAC is also pleased to announce that our own Shonterria Charleston will step into the Director of Technical Assistance and Training position. In a career spanning several positions at HAC, Shonterria has brought tremendous knowledge, enthusiasm and dedication to her work. In her most recent position as Program and Training Manager, she oversaw HAC’s RCDI program, Veterans Initiative and training activities. Having served in the Army, Shonterria champions and cares deeply about the many issues and challenges veterans encounter. She also speaks movingly about how her role as a mom and daughter deepens her commitment to rural housing and social issues.
As the Director, Shonterria will supervise the division and HAC’s regional offices. She will direct our work on site in rural communities; and manage various grants and initiatives from her office in Georgia. Shonterria will also lead us in preparing for HAC’s 2018 national conference.
David Lipsetz, HAC’s Executive Director, said, “I have no doubt that her enthusiasm and professional talent will continue to serve HAC well, strengthen our relationships with rural-serving partners and allow us to effectively serve the needs of rural communities.”
Please join the HAC in welcoming Shonterria into this new role.
