The staff at NCHH includes:

Nancy Rockett Eldridge
Executive Director

Ms. Eldridge joined NCHH in August 2015 after 16 years as the chief executive officer of the Cathedral Square Corporation, a Vermont-based nonprofit, where she increased the number of CSC's affordable housing communities to 28 and expanding its focus to include the health of Vermont's aging population. Eldridge is the founder of the Support and Services at Home (SASH) initiative, a team effort to help Medicare beneficiaries remain at home and get the services they need, when they need them.

Ms. Eldridge holds a master's degree in urban and environmental policy from Tufts University. She brings a new perspective to NCHH's work. In addition to continuing to support the improvement of substandard housing, Ms. Eldridge views the thousands of high-quality affordable housing developments across the country as a valuable asset in healthcare reform and essential to healthy neighborhoods.
