Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. October, 2012)

Mr. William D. Faith

Term:

Since Nov 1986

Profile:

Bill Faith has served as COHHIO's executive director since 1994. Throughout his career, Bill has worked to develop housing solutions for people with disabilities; directed agencies serving the needs of the homeless and promoted affordable housing, especially for very low-income people. He has had extensive involvement with all of the key state and federal government agencies on a wide range of housing and homelessness assistance programs. On the national level, Bill has served as Chairman of the National Low-Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) for six years and also as President of the Board of Directors for the National Coalition for the Homeless.

Leadership Statement:

COHHIO's strength is in its ability to drive public policy to meet the needs of its constituency in an ever-changing economic landscape. Years ago, COHHIO helped create the Ohio Housing Trust Fund, a flexible funding source designed to serve Ohio's most critical housing needs. Later COHHIO won a dedicated, permanent funding stream of $50 million for the Ohio Housing Trust Fun. In 2011 and 2012 COHHIO focused  efforts on protecting the fund from budget raids in contentious state budget cycles. OHTF addresses the changing and often urgent housing issues that face low-income Ohioans by expanding and improving housing opportunities. Today, needs are in the area of affordable housing preservation, where COHHIO won a joint $5 million multi-year grant from the MacArthur Foundation to preserve 14,000 units across the state. COHHIO was an early harbinger of the impact of predatory mortgage lending on low-income Ohioans and worked tirelessly to pass the Ohio Homebuyers' Protection Act in 2006. A year later, we took up the fight and won against predatory payday lenders, who trap low-income customers in a deepening cycle of debt. Today we're working to advance a state plan to fund operating support for permanent supportive housing; and fight predatory lending schemes that invariably make their way into the legislative process.

Program Description:

Advocacy ProgramCOHHIO’s advocacy program pushes for systemic change – whether it’s to prevent foreclosures or mitigate their impact on communities; rid the state of toxic loan products that hurt rather than help needy borrowers; or advocate for programs that help people in need gain access to a safe place to live. Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) ProgramHMIS is the collection and electronic storage of information on homeless individuals and families using residential or other homeless assistance services. Since 2002, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has made implementing an HMIS a priority in the criteria it uses to review funding applications. COHHIO provides technical assistance and training to agencies required to participate in HMIS. OhioVOTES ProgramCOHHIO’s OhioVOTES is a nonpartisan, civic engagement program that helps expand the role of Ohio’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in voting and elections. It seeks to increase voter and civic participation among the clients, constituents and neighborhoods of nonprofits serving economically disadvantaged areas to help them achieve economic and social uplift and healthier communities. Training and Technical Assistance Program Each year, COHHIO delivers tools and knowledge to approximately 200 community-based organizations. This includes organizing trainings and seminars, conducting site visits, speaking at workshops, meeting with government officials, distributing printed materials, and conducting an annual resource-rich statewide conference. These organizations in turn offer housing assistance and supportive services to homeless individuals and families in each of the state's 88 counties.  Tenant Outreach ProgramCOHHIO's Tenants Outreach program provides information and support to tenants and advocates throughout Ohio on rental rights, fair housing, housing advocacy and tenant organizing. The primary focus is on tenants living in federally assisted housing.Youth Empowerment ProgramYEP helps build strength within a fragile population. The program works with homeless youth, focusing on community service, leadership training, and advocacy activities as pathways to building self-esteem and opportunity. YEP strives to help youth become active community members and productive citizens, ultimately leading to positive changes in local, state and national policy making. SSI Ohio Project: COHHIO helps expedite the SSI/SSDI application process by reducing barriers and ultimately increasing the number of homeless disabled individuals receiving benefits.   Preservation Compact: COHHIO's Preservation Compact is a partnership among key affordable housing organizations that seeks to preserve at lest 14,000 units statewide over the next 10 years.

Program Long-Term Success:

Passage of one of the strongest payday lending reform laws in the country. House Bill 545 caps interest rates at 28 percent annual interest, down from 391 percent, among other measures. Fought national payday lobby on referendum attempting to overturn law.

Program Description:

COHHIO's Tenant Outreach program focuses on stabilizing rental households, expanding housing choice and inclusion, organizing tenant communities, preserving affordable housing and advocating for tenants rights. Staff members provide direct assistance to tenants (especially those living in Federally assisted properties) and training and technical assistance to housing service providers around the state.  Through strategic partnerships with local municipalities and state housing programs (OHFA, ODMH, ODOD), COHHIO participates in planning for safe, decent, fair and affordable rental housing for all Ohioans.   In 2011, COHHIO’s Tenant Outreach program received 476 calls seeking tenant information, held 14 meetings with 47 tenant groups resulting in 1,778 tenant contacts, managed 120 fair housing or household stabilization cases, reached 356 people through 12 workshops on fair housing or tenants’ rights, and provided 756 contacts in 82 organizations with project-specific technical assistance, and had a total of 4,852 contacts with 23 stabilization or preservation related networks.

Program Description:

COHHIO pushes for systemic changes to benefit people in need. Our primary efforts focus on increasing affordable and supportive housing and reducing homelessness in the state. As is often the case, however, we respond quickly to legislation that threatens our state’s vulnerable and disenfranchised populations. In recent years our advocacy efforts broadened to include consumer and voter protection and foreclosure reform. COHHIO continued successful efforts to protect the Ohio Housing Trust Fund, a revenue source that serves critical housing needs, from budget raids during the biennial budget session. COHHIO was able to effectively demonstrate the efficacy of the OHTF and the value it brings to the state’s economy. The OHTF received full funding in the 2012-2013 biennium budget. COHHIO helped facilitate productive working relationships between nonprofit homeowner counselors and OHFA’s COHHIO directed efforts among voter advocates to develop research and education on issues that impact voting, including the consolidation of precincts and the elimination of early voting hours. COHHIO continued to lead efforts to create and preserve 6,000 units of permanent supportive housing by 2014.
