One of Greenville's biggest champions for affordable housing and one of GHF's founding board members, Ginny Stroud, is leaving the City of Greenville as the Community Development Director after 19 years of service. Ginny's passionate work has given so much to the people of the community that she has served for so long. She has overseen the allocation of nearly $2 million of various HUD dollars throughout special emphasis neighborhoods. She also helped add more than 2,200 affordable and workforce housing units through public-private partnerships, leveraging $250 million in local, state and federal funding. She has overseen collborative projects such as net zero homes and initiated the City's 2016 Affordable Housing Strategic Plan, which led to the creation of GHF.
Ginny, to Greenvile's benefit, is staying in the community as she begins her new position at United Bank in their community reinvestment division. She will also remain on GHF's board of directors.
GHF would like to invite you to contribute to Ginny's legacy in the form of a donation to GHF so that we may contribute funds raised to a future project to honor Ginny. You may donate here.
