After five years at the helm, Alliance for Housing Solutions (AHS) executive director Michelle Winters announced plans to leave the advocacy organization on November 30.

“AHS is such a unique organization, and I have been honored to be able to lead its vital work during a time of transformation as well,” she wrote in an Oct. 1 letter to supporters.

“I think AHS ‘successful track record and strong foundation will allow its next leader to build on our strong momentum,” said Winters. “I joined AHS in 2016 so that I could put my knowledge of housing issues and my passion for inclusive communities to use here in my own backyard. I am proud of the many successes we have achieved together, although I know there is still a lot of essential work to be done.

In a note to supporters, the organization‘s board members commended Winters as “a thoughtful and dedicated champion of affordable housing during years of significant growth and transition, generously sharing her policy expertise, partnership skills and wisdom with those seeking to maximize the opportunities for safe, decent and affordable housing for everyone in Arlington.

“Because of their dedication and commitment to our mission, AHS is strong and well positioned to continue its work,” said the directors.

Winters’ tenure will be celebrated at the 2021 Ellen M. Bozman Affordable Housing Awards presentation, scheduled for November 14.
