I am pleased to announce that Rose Evans has been hired as the new Associate Director for the Division of Housing Stabilization at DHCD. Rose joins the Patrick-Murray Administration after nearly three decades at the Center for Human Development in Springfield, where since 1992 she was the Program Director of an array of multi-services programs serving children, adolescents, and families. She has extensive experience in management and supervision and a deep knowledge of the housing and homelessness field, ranging from emergency shelters to permanent supportive housing.

She maintains a passion and commitment to children, families, staff, and stakeholders and is guided by the Department’s mission to prevent homelessness, to provide emergency shelter as an important safety net, and to expand permanent housing options for low income households.
