At the start of a week that will be a challenge for many, we want to take a moment to reflect on a bright spot. Next Stage is proud to have partnered with Supportive Housing Communities (SHC) on the placement of Sherrill Hampton as CEO.
She becomes the new CEO on March 16, 2020, succeeding Pamela Jefsen who has retired after 10 years as the organization’s leader. Sherrill is an accomplished nonprofit executive with deep experience in affordable housing and community development. She will lead SHC in meeting the needs of the community by assisting residents in obtaining and remaining in permanent housing and supporting recovery and wellness.
Supportive Housing Communities is a leader in Charlotte for ending homelessness by providing permanent supportive housing to homeless people with disabilities. The organization prides itself on a 97% success rate of keeping our residents in stable housing.
“The board selected Next Stage because their services precisely matched up with what we intended to focus on – search and transition preparedness,” said Tonya Bruce, Board Chair for SHC. “Josh and his team have been part of the nonprofit fabric of Charlotte for many years. They understand the makeup of organizations big and small, best practices and their stakeholder and referral network is quite extensive. Our candidate pool was full of high-caliber, highly-skilled executives who could take our organization to the next level.”
