Board of Directors

The Housing Resource Center of Monterey County needs YOU!

Are you passionate about ending homelessness and helping everyone find—and learn to keep—safe, affordable housing? Do you have time, skills or expertise to share? The Housing Resource Center (HRC) of Monterey County is actively seeking dedicated individuals to join our Board of Directors and/or participate on working Board Committees.

HRC is an independent, non-profit housing agency. Over the past thirty years, HRC has prevented and ended homelessness for over 38,000 members of our community! Financial literacy and other skills that teach independence and long-term sustainability are integral components of all of our programs.

Please help us grow! We are particularly looking to add individuals with expertise in housing, non-profit finance, Board Governance, fundraising, or human resources to our Board. We meet monthly at our office at 201 John Street, near downtown Salinas. Additionally, each Committee meets monthly or as needed. For more information, please contact Jess Gutierrez at 408-772-7648 or email or Kelley Ann Foy at 831-402-0432 or mail
