Nonprofit leaders: A qualitative study of nonprofit leadership in Central Florida's affordable housing market

by Bispham, Jeoffrey H., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 136 pages; 3288782


The affordable housing crisis in the United States has severely impacted the elements of the population that provide vital services to the community. Police officers, school teachers, nurses, and fire fighters provide the basic infrastructure for the communities they serve. Unfortunately these vital resources are finding it increasingly difficult to live in the communities they serve due to the significant rise in home prices. Nonprofit organizations, such as Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) are addressing the crisis with varying degrees of success. The executive leaders of CHDOs guide their organizations toward strategic objectives, and their leadership attributes are strong indicators of their ability to successfully meet those objectives.
