Meet the Board of Directors

Housing Hope has a dynamic group of volunteers, leaders in their communities and industries, dedicated to helping solve the family homelessness issue in Snohomish County.

Regional Boards

Housing Hope's Board of Directors created three Regional Boards –one in the East area of Snohomish County, one in the North area of Snohomish County, and one in the South area of Snohomish County – to ensure that Housing Hope remains responsive to the housing needs of the local communities in the outlying areas of the County.


These three formal groups of citizen volunteers meet monthly, offering advice and recommendations to agency staff and the Board of Directors on local need and priorities for development, programs and strategic goals. Members raise awareness of Housing Hope within their region and participate in efforts to raise funds that support motivated homeless families.

North County Regional Board

The North County Regional Branch Board, created in 2004, serves local communities in the North and Northeast areas of Snohomish County and on Camano Island.

East County Regional Board

The East County Regional Board serves local communities in the Sky Valley areas of East Snohomish County. When the Board organized in 2003, Board members adopted a goal to create 100 affordable housing. With the completion of Monroe Family Village in Fall 2015, they will have surpassed this goal.
