Theresa Deibele named Housing Opportunities Portfolio Director

I’m delighted to share the good news that Theresa Deibele will be Meyer’s new Housing Opportunities Portfolio Director!

While you know Theresa from her three years as a program officer at Meyer Memorial Trust, focused on Responsive Grants and PRIs, her background and skill sets make her an excellent fit for this specialized leadership position. Theresa has deep roots in housing, management, finance, community development and the law that will compliment our current AHI team and set the standard for our new portfolio directors.

As an attorney, Theresa gained significant experience in public finance and a broad understanding of Oregon’s housing landscape, along with the complex regulatory framework for housing transactions. She brings deep and unique insights from her years as Chief Financial Officer at ChristieCare, where she oversaw an $8 million budget during a rocky period in the children’s mental health policy and funding environment, and shepherded the organization through a merger. As supervisor of professional staff with deep content expertise, Theresa also oversaw a staff of 14, including finance, human resources, facilities and IT. And she has served as a mentor to up-and-coming professionals.

While at Meyer, she has established relationships in the statewide housing nonprofit community, including housing authorities, large multifamily housing developers, housing advocates, land trusts and organizations serving people experiencing homelessness. And over the last two years, she has managed Meyer’s Habitat for Humanity program and fully engaged in Meyer Trust’s PRI work.

Please join me and Candy in congratulating Theresa on her new transition!
