Kent Attainable Housing Hires Key Leaders to Scale the Organization's Impact

The Board of Directors of Kent Attainable Housing (KAH) is pleased to announce the appointment of Terwana Brown and Dylan Grimes to key leadership positions. Grimes and Brown will work with KAH Board and Volunteer Leaders to scale the organization’s impact.

Terwana Brown joined the KAH staff as a full-time Program Manager in July, vacating her former role as Vice-President of the KAH Board. In her new position, Brown is responsible for the organization’s Future Homeowner Program, which helps income-limited, working families attain home ownership. Brown is a former small-business owner and most recently worked as an administrator with the Kent County Health Department, helping lead the local response to the COVID-19 epidemic. Leon Frison, a former President of Kent County’s Local Management Board, and a retired Kent County Middle School Teacher, has been elected to replace Brown as Board Vice-President and President-Elect.

Dylan Grimes, who currently serves as Director of Development for Central Delaware Habitat for Humanity, has been appointed to serve as KAH’s first Chief Development and Community Engagement Officer. In this role, Grimes will advance the mission of KAH through fundraising, corporate partnerships, volunteer engagement, and community events. Grimes will start her new role on September 12th.         READ MORE

Our Work

We buy property, design or renovate homes, landscape the yards and partner with low-income families to buy the home.  We build the capacity of our applicants to successfully own a home through required workshops in financial literacy, home ownership, and budget management.  We use community volunteers and partners to help make the homes affordable and to mentor applicants through the process.
