We are thrilled to have Angela Hurlock, Chairperson of the Board of the Chicago Housing Authority, as a New Gravity Keynote Speaker.
Ms. Hurlock has more than 20 years of experience in providing affordable, safe and environmentally efficient housing to low-income residents of Chicago. She was appointed by Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot in September 2019.
Ms. Hurlock serves as Executive Director of Claretian Associates, where she oversees the development, execution and evaluation of the community development corporation, which serves 3,000 families a year. It provides affordable housing and vital services that benefit the safety and well-being of residents and families in South Chicago and its surrounding communities.
Prior to that, Ms. Hurlock served as Senior Director of Real Estate Development for Bethel New Life, a non-profit serving Chicago’s West Side. During her tenure, the organization was able to provide families at or below 50 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI) with affordable, transit-oriented housing opportunities and employment resources while reviving the community area through economic development.
