The Partnership for Affordable Housing is very pleased to announce the appointment of Nan Stevens as our new Program Director. After she assumes her duties on March 1, Nan will develop and administer PAH programs and services and serve as liaison with our community.
A graduate of West Virginia University, Leadership Berkeley, and Leadership West Virginia, Nan brings a wealth of housing and community development experience to PAH. She has spent nearly 20 years as Eastern WV Area Manager for the West Virginia Housing Development Fund, nine years as Martinsburg City Planner, and seven years as Potomac Valley Development Coordinator for the Region 8 Planning and Development Council. Nan has worked with the entire spectrum of housing consumers, providers, lenders, and officials. She has developed and implemented programs to address housing needs in our area and has prepared and administered grant requests and funds. As a public spokesperson in her professional life and as a volunteer in her community activities, she has forged many ties across government, business, nonprofit groups, and individuals in our region.
Nan serves her community as vice president of the Berkeley County Development Authority and as member of the Housing Work Group of the Eastern Panhandle Health & Human Services Collaborative, the Chamber of Commerce, and West Virginia’s Promise Alliance for Youth. In the past, Nan has served as president of Main Street Martinsburg and as member of the Berkeley County Board of Zoning Appeals, the Telemon Community Action Board, the Gateway New Economy Council, the Potomac Headwaters Resource Conservation and Development Council, and the Shawnee Girl Scout Council.
The Partnership looks forward to working with Nan as she applies her expertise and community commitment to the pressing need for affordable housing. With Nan on our team, we look forward to expanding our services beyond our current homebuyer and rental assistance, credit counseling, and homebuyer education programs. Together, we will advance our mission to ensure access to safe and affordable housing through advocacy, education, and the development of housing resources.
