Associated Colleges of Illinois Board Elects New Leadership for 2020-2021

CHICAGO, Ill. -- The Associated Colleges of Illinois (ACI) Board of Trustees ( elected Lyn Bulman, retired executive vice president of global human resources, Fellowes Brands, to a two-year term as board chair. Bulman succeeded Frank D. Cella, managing director, Marsh USA, Inc., who served as ACI's board chair since 2017.

Bulman, Oak Park, Illinois, who previously served as the board's Program Committee Chair, began her new duties this month. "I am delighted to be taking this role," Bulman told the trustees. "I think ACI is a great organization. I'm very proud of the work that we do, and I think there's a lot of great progress going on that we can continue."

The board also elected Angela T. Allen, Mitchell Titus, Chicago, as treasurer and Finance Committee chair. She succeeded Clifton C. Fenton, who served several years in both roles. The board's other officer, Dr. Jamel Wright, president of Eureka College, remained in her role as ACI president.

First-ever student board representative elected

The Board of Trustees elected Chloe Overstreet, a student at Eureka College (, Eureka, Illinois, as the board's first student representative in ACI's 68-year history. Overstreet, from Stillman Valley, Illinois, will begin her junior year at Eureka College this fall, majoring in history and political science, and business administration.

Overstreet was nominated by the board's Trusteeship Committee, which began discussions earlier this year about adding a student to further diversify the board. Currently, the board has 37 corporate members, plus the presidents of ACI's 27 member colleges and universities.

Overstreet is a first-generation college student, who started her college career at Eureka shortly after her father died in a work-related accident. Once at Eureka, she joined ACI's Peer Mentoring Program, aimed at helping first-generation college students through their critical first year. She began as a mentee and is now a mentor to incoming first-generation students.

"The program offered both guidance and financial relief as I was beginning college," Overstreet wrote in a letter to the board. "Access to emergency funds provided the relief that I needed to start college." Serving as an ACI board member will provide a student perspective and help other students access opportunities that ACI provides, Overstreet added.

In May, Overstreet recorded a video about her experience at Eureka College and the Peer Mentoring Program for ACI's annual fundraising event, a virtual event this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Her video can be viewed at

National Community Stabilization Trust Announces Leadership of Two National Initiatives

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, the National Community Stabilization Trust (NCST) announced its leadership of two national initiatives. First, NCST announced the formation of the Homeownership Alliance, which will advocate for more resources and better policies to increase affordable homeownership opportunities for American families.

Second, NCST announced it will join NeighborWorks America as a partner in leading the Middle Neighborhoods Initiative, which brings attention to neighborhoods across the country that have long been stable communities for middle- and working-class families, but that today are at risk of either decline or displacement from gentrification.

These initiatives both arose in response to unmet needs the national advocacy landscape, and they aim to fill those gaps. Together, they represent a significant new commitment of resources to NCST's policy work aimed at preventing neighborhood blight, promoting stable communities, and supporting affordable homeownership.

Homeownership Alliance

The Homeownership Alliance's members comprise some of the leading nonprofit, mission-focused homeownership practitioners from across the country. These organizations prepare families to become successful homeowners and finance, renovate, and develop affordable homes that are assets for communities and the families that live in them.

"The organizations in the Alliance share the belief that in the United States, homeownership has long served as the most accessible path for families to build assets," stated Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership President and CEO John O'Callaghan, one of the founding members of the Alliance. "In addition to increasing wealth, homeownership provides families with the stability needed to achieve other positive outcomes, especially for children."

The Homeownership Alliance will focus on both legislative and regulatory opportunities to increase funding for affordable homeownership by improving and expanding existing programs and creating new sources of funding. Guided by its members, the group's advocacy will reflect the experiences of and lessons learned by some of the nation's most innovative and resilient homeownership developers and lenders.

Kris Siglin, Vice President for Policy and Partnerships at NCST, who is leading the formation of the group, explained, "Mission-driven homeownership practitioners need a voice in Washington that secures new resources for affordable homeownership and bolsters the capacity of nonprofits who operate in this sector. Creating this coalition will provide a more focused, practitioner-driven voice for homeownership than currently exists in the housing advocacy spectrum."

"As we look for look for strategies to confront inequality and reduce the racial wealth gap, affordable, sustainable homeownership is our nation's most proven tool to build wealth for families and stabilize communities," added NCST President Julia Gordon.

The Homeownership Alliance has 21 Founding Members. They are: Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership (GA); cdcb (TX); Center for Community Self Help (NC); Champlain Housing Trust (VT); CHN Housing Partners (OH); Cinnaire (MI); Community Housing Capital (GA); Fahe (KY); Homewise (NM); Hogar Hispano (DC); Housing Development Fund (CT); Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership (IN); MaineStream Finance (ME); Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (IL); NeighborWorks Columbus (GA); NeighborWorks Southern Colorado (CO); NeighborWorks Western Vermont (VT); New Jersey Community Capital (NJ); Renaissance Community Loan Fund (MS); The Housing Partnership, Inc. (KY); and The Resurrection Project (IL).

In addition, ten national partners will participate in the Homeownership Alliance's policy development and advocacy: Enterprise Community Partners; Grounded Solutions Network; Habitat for Humanity; Housing Partnership Network; Local Initiatives Support Corporation; NALCAB - National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders; National NeighborWorks Association; Opportunity Finance Network; Prosperity Now; and Unidos US.

Middle Neighborhoods

NCST is joining with NeighborWorks America as a partner in leading the Middle Neighborhoods Initiative, previously housed at The American Assembly at Columbia University. By bringing attention to middle neighborhoods, this initiative supports the continued health and vitality of these neighborhoods so that they can remain safe, affordable communities that offer a high quality of life and access to opportunity. You can learn more at

"We are delighted to announce that NeighborWorks America and NCST will be leading the fight for America' middle neighborhoods. Both of these organizations have a track record of supporting practitioners working to strengthen and rebuild neighborhoods across the country," said Nedra Sims Fears, Executive Director of the Greater Chatham Initiative in Chicago, IL. Fears is a member of the National Middle Neighborhoods Steering Committee and a co-chair of the Middle Neighborhoods Community of Practice.

Going forward, NCST will coordinate national Middle Neighborhoods activities, including conducting research on neighborhood dynamics and developing policy proposals for supporting and investing in middle neighborhoods. NCST will also lead a communication effort focused on the importance of devoting resources to middle neighborhoods. The Steering Committee will continue to advise NCST on the direction of the initiative.

NCST President Julia Gordon stated: "Strong, stable middle neighborhoods offer a high quality of life, affordable housing, and access to opportunity for their residents, many of whom are households of color. The fate of middle neighborhoods matters immensely for racial and economic equity, and NCST is excited to bring its commitment and experience in fighting disinvestment and blight to the Middle Neighborhoods Initiative."

NeighborWorks America will support the Middle Neighborhoods Community of Practice, which brings city officials and neighborhood-based organizations from across the nation together with policy makers, academics, financial institutions, and foundations interested in these efforts. The Community convenes for peer-to-peer learning to share local best practices for supporting middle neighborhoods.

"We are excited to connect local stakeholders who are focused on stabilizing and revitalizing middle neighborhoods with their peers from across the country," said Paul Singh, Vice President of Community Initiatives at NeighborWorks America. "Through the Community of Practice, we hope to expand the toolkit for practitioners who are working to build strong and vibrant middle neighborhoods."

In the coming months, the Middle Neighborhoods Community of Practice will redouble its efforts at recruitment, communication, and collaboration among practitioners and will also catalogue how communities are responding to the COVID-19 crisis. NCST will publish new research on the dynamics and importance of middle neighborhoods and develop policy agendas for supporting and investing in middle neighborhoods.

Adelante Healthcare Selects Pedro Cons as New CEO

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Adelante Healthcare has announced the appointment of Pedro Cons as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Mr. Cons will join the organization on July 6, 2020.

"Following an extensive national search, The Board of Directors is excited to welcome such an amazing, community-oriented and thoughtful leader as our next CEO. Pedro's background is rooted in serving the Valley's most vulnerable and we are looking forward to leveraging his skill and expertise to lead Adelante Healthcare into the future," said Phil Taylor, Chairperson of the Adelante Board of Directors.

Pedro Cons currently serves as the Executive Vice President of Integrated Health and Human Services for Chicanos Por La Causa (also known as CPLC). In that role, he oversees CPLC's primary care partnerships, home health care program, behavioral health, HIV testing and case management, 340b pharmacy, and a host of other programs across Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas.

He has been with CPLC for more than 14 years in a variety of roles, but brings more than 25 years of community-focused non-profit and for-profit program experience to the challenge of leading Adelante into the future.

Mr. Cons has worked tirelessly to build relationships with a variety of entities including schools, businesses, other nonprofit organizations, and state and federal government entities in order to exponentially increase the impact of his resources.

In addition, his breadth of experience includes strategic planning, resource development, program development, human resources, providing direct services and overall program oversight and executive leadership.

According to Search Committee Chair and Board Vice-Chair, Sentari Minor, "When looking for our next leader, the Board and CEO Search Committee were intentional in identifying the need for someone with both deep experience in our community and overseeing a diverse book of business. Our search led us to Pedro and we couldn't be more thrilled."

Mr. Cons takes the reins from Dr. Robert Babyar, Adelante Chief Medical Officer, who stepped in during the pandemic and has provided excellent leadership as Interim CEO over the last nine months. Dr. Babyar resumes his role as Chief Medical Officer following the transition.

The appointment of Pedro Cons as Adelante's CEO comes at a remarkable time. As the nation faces the multiple challenges of a pandemic, widespread unemployment and racial tension, the importance of Federally Qualified Community Health Centers as a critical part of our healthcare safety net is clear.

Born out of the civil rights and social justice movement of the 1960's, Community Health Centers serve as advocates for quality care and health equity for all. Adelante has been working to ease the negative consequences of the social determinants of health in Maricopa County for more than 40 years. As CEO of Adelante, Pedro Cons will be leading new ways to tackle these long-standing and daunting challenges.
