Minnesota Housing Partnership (MHP), one of the nation’s leading affordable housing support organizations, announced today that it has hired Anne Mavity as new executive director.
Mavity brings 30 years of experience in affordable housing, capacity building and development. Among her varied experience, she has worked on a Congressional Subcommittee on housing and provided technical assistance and underwriting at the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH). Most recently she was director of new projects at Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative where she led development of several affordable housing projects in the Twin Cities as well as local and state advocacy efforts. While at Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, Mavity also organized hundreds of congregational and civic leaders to attend public hearings and help secure unanimous support from the Edina City Council for the city’s first supportive housing development.
In her new role, Mavity will guide MHP as it continues its leadership role in housing and community development in Minnesota and nationally. She will lead MHP focusing on three core areas of work: policy/advocacy, research/communications, and capacity building. She will continue the work to develop services that build on the business core and increase the organization’s impact and financial sustainability.
