Dear friends and supporters,
The East Bay Housing Organizations’ Board of Directors is thrilled to announce Lindsay Haddix has been named as EBHO’s new Executive Director beginning September 25, 2023.
Lindsay has dedicated her career to solving the dual crises of homelessness and housing affordability while centering social equity and environmental sustainability in her work. She holds a wealth of experience in government and non-profit work including work at the City of San Mateo County Department of Housing, BRIDGE Housing, and San Francisco’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing where she oversaw the real estate development of housing, shelters, and service sites. She was most recently the Housing Initiative Program Manager at Meta where she focused on advancing investment and policy priorities for the company’s $1 billion commitment to address the affordable housing crisis in California.
On behalf of the board, I want to express my deep appreciation for the staff at EBHO for their hard work during this transition period. A big thanks to Interim Executive Director Debra Ballinger and Interim Co-Directors Sophia DeWitt and Kiki Poe for their leadership during this transition period. I would also like to thank the EBHO Search and Executive Committee members, William Goodwin, Angela Upshaw, Ellen Wu, Vanna Whitney, Felix AuYeung, and Natalie Bonnewit, for their time and dedication throughout this process.
Since 1984, EBHO has been the leading affordable housing advocacy coalition serving Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. We are looking forward to EBHO’s continued growth under Lindsay’s leadership and to furthering our vision of a racially and economically just East Bay where everyone has a safe, stable, and affordable home.
— Hang Mosier, Board President
