Executive Director Transition Announcement

October 25th, 2021

It is with a mix of gratitude and sadness that the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) Board of Directors announces Jasmine Boyle’s upcoming departure as Executive Director. Over the last several years, Jasmine has been instrumental in developing ACEH into a community-wide coalition focused on making homelessness in Anchorage rare, brief, and one-time. We thank Jasmine for her dedication to furthering ACEH’s mission and vision, commitment to our vulnerable neighbors and recognize her contributions to our city. Jasmine has been the driving force behind ACEH’s growth and success as an organization. In collaboration with members, dedicated staff and partners, ACEH accomplished numerous milestones:

 

Designed and implemented Anchored Home: Anchorage’s Strategic Plan to Solve Homelessness, with core governmental, philanthropic, private, and public sector partners, securing multiple new partnerships for pilot programs and innovations

Implemented ACEH’s first three-year strategic plan, including the transition to a bifurcated governance model empowering a new Board of Directors and an Advisory Council made up of subject-matter experts

Strengthened the Anchorage Homeless Prevention and Response System implementing numerous system and data improvements resulting in increased housing and services across the continuum and enhanced outcome measurements

Partnered with the statewide Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness to create educational and advocacy platforms such as community forums, town halls and virtual events engaging thousands of community members across Alaska

Launched and supported the Lived Experience Advisory Committee which later evolved into the Homeless Resource Advisory Council (HRAC), an independent group of those with lived expertise advising ACEH and empowering the most important voices in the conversation around homelessness

Jasmine will be joining Rural Alaska Community Action Program Inc. (RurAL CAP) as Chief Operating Officer in December of 2021. Jasmine will continue to support our shared mission in her new role working with Alaska’s only Community Action Agency to address poverty by improving health, well-being and the lives of Alaskans across the state.

 

Over the next several months, the ACEH Board, with the assistance of the Advisory Council, will be conducting a thorough search to find ACEH’s next Executive Director. The Board’s priority is to identify a dynamic leader with a passion for ACEH’s mission and who will continue to emphasize partnerships and collective action to solve homelessness in Anchorage.

 

Sincerely,

 

Nathan Johnson, Board of Directors Chair

 

Judith Crotty, Board of Directors Vice- Chair,

Executive Director Transition Committee Chair
