The new year brought new opportunities for one of our WCCD members this year. Halley Henry, previously Communications and Fundraising Manager at the National Housing Trust, started a new role at the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing & Economic Development in January 2020 as Director of Advocacy and Communications. In her new role, Halley develops, manages and executes CNHED’s advocacy and communications strategies, promoting the work of the organization, its members, and the broader economic community development field in the District. Previously working in the national housing landscape, Halley now collaborates with local groups and residents to promote and develop equitable communities across DC.
“I’m overjoyed to now have the opportunity to work on housing and economic development issues locally,” she says. “You can truly see the impact of your work on the local level and I a deeper connection to the communities that CNHED serves. These are my neighbors! And I am incredibly excited to now have some overlap between my personal and professional life.”
As Halley settles into her new role, she’d love to connect with other WCCD members on the local landscape. Feel free to reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org.
