Hello! I’m Andrew Lewis-Lechner, and I’m excited to introduce myself as the new Development Director at the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance! In my new role, I’ll primarily be responsible for expanding our member base, managing donor relationships and connecting the Housing Alliance with partners who can help us further our mission: to ensure that everyone in Washington has access to a safe, healthy, and affordable home.
I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1999, and have been in the nonprofit sector basically my whole working life. Most recently, I was the Development Director for Courage360, a Tacoma based organization providing job training and housing services targeted to single parents working to increase their earning power and build stability for their families. From family self-sufficiency, to self-determination for the terminally ill, to international conflict resolution, I’ve found it a privilege to come to work every day for organizations that are shaping progressive change.
I’m lucky to be surrounded by talented, motivated and compassionate staff and leadership at the Housing Alliance, and I couldn’t be happier to join the team!
