Please join us in welcoming Rita Weatherbee.

We are excited to introduce you to Rita Weatherbee, our new Project Coordinator. Rita comes to the Coalition with 27 years of experience working for the State of South Dakota in various capacities, most recently for the Department of Tourism. Although Rita was semi-retired, her passion for homeownership led her to apply for the Project Coordinator position. She believes that homeownership should be possible for everyone. In her role as Project Coordinator, she will be working closely with Elias Mendoza, Project Director, as the Coalition transitions to an independent nonprofit organization. In addition, she will be providing administrative support to our working committees, tracking data, and managing and reporting on grants.
