Juan Ramos, a longtime community leader in housing and human rights, will assume the role of Executive Director of Southside United HDFC-Los Sures on October 1, 2017. Ramos has been an active Los Sures board member since 2012 and has served as chair for the past two years. He is Chair of the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence, the co-founder and a Board member of Churches United for Fair Housing (CUFFH) and a former Board member of El Puente.
“We believe that Mr. Ramos is best suited to steer Los Sures into the future because he embodies the traits that are vital for the organization’s success: commitment, integrity and respect for the civic, civil and human rights of others,” said David Lopez, Chair of the Board of Directors of Los Sures.
Mr. Ramos is a community leader who developed firsthand knowledge of the inner workings of the organization since his initial volunteer efforts with Los Sures and the Southside more than ten years ago. He is a well-known figure in the community and has a proven record of accomplishment in managing non-profit organizations and coalition building.
Mr. Ramos said. “I am humbled by the confidence that the board has entrusted in me to lead this critically important community organization. I want to assure all of our stakeholders that our mission to develop and manage affordable housing remains as strong as ever. I look forward to creatively crafting new ways to build our portfolio while serving the needs of the neighborhood.”
