Pennsylvania had a severe shortage of affordable and healthy housing before COVID-19. Now, the National Council of State Housing Agencies estimates that in Pennsylvania, the pandemic and the resulting economic impact have put 240,000 families at risk of losing their homes. The problem may be in new scale, but it is familiar to RHLS, which has succeeded in the long-term work of creating safe, affordable housing for all.

This position is an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader with vision, strong management skills, and a deep understanding of the connection between racial equity and housing justice. Our next Executive Director will lead a passionate legal team that turns dreams into safe, affordable communities.
