GREENSBORO – The Greensboro Housing Coalition has named Josie Williams as its new Executive Director, effective this week.
The Housing Coalition is a non-profit organization that helps people find affordable, safe housing through community programs while providing education in financial literacy and budget planning.
Williams is replacing Brett Byerly, whose tenure as executive director ends this week. He goes to pursue other charitable housing projects.
Williams joined the Housing Coalition in 2016 as a community engagement director.
“Josie has the passion, background and drive to lead GHC as it accomplishes its mission and positions its efforts to address the affordable housing crisis in our community,” said Coalition Chairman Antonia Monk Richburg in a press release .
Williams is from Greensboro and became interested in working with housing insecurity because of her personal experience with homelessness, according to the press release.
She has also worked with the agency’s role in the Collaborative Cottage Grove partnership, a group of organizations and neighborhood residents who work together to address issues such as the relationship between health and quality of life in the Cottage Grove neighborhood in Greensboro.
