RHF Leadership

The board of directors of Retirement Housing Foundation currently consist of 10 volunteers who spend approximately 30 days out of each year in service to RHF. They call various parts of the United States home, ranging from the hills of Vermont to the Hawaiian Islands.

These directors are dedicated to RHF’s mission, and they bring a variety of life experiences ranging from property appraisal, insurance, clergy, property development and construction, accounting, graphic arts and professional photography, medicine, business, and law. Some are currently practicing in their fields of expertise, while others are recently retired.

These volunteers, together with the senior and general staff at RHF, work tirelessly to make RHF one of the nation’s largest providers of affordable housing, continually investigating ways to expand RHF’s programs to those in need.
