UHDC is a community-based organization with diversity in race/ethnicity, gender, and experience. The UHDC Board of Directors is a nine-member board which consists of two County Judges, a retired construction contractor, a representative of a community-based organization, a retired home improvement retail employee, assistant manager of a retail business, a business owner, a county employee who operates a rental assistance program for very low income clients and a resident who was a participant in the Self-Help Housing program. Board Members live and work within the UHDC service area. By Board Resolution, at least one-third of the membership of UHDC's board should come from low-income neighborhoods, low-income community residents or elected representatives of low-income neighborhood organizations. Our board represents a cross-section of our community and has a passion for our organization and those we serve. The members work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of the organization and oversee that the funds raised directly affect those in need.
As with the UHDC Board, the UHDC staff reflects the community with diversity in both in race/ethnicity, gender, and experience. Our staff has a strong commitment to serving the many constituents of our organization. But first and foremost, they focus their energies on those who can take advantage of our programs and services.
