Natalie Reider joined Jamboree in 2015 as Director of Community Impact to lead the expansion of resident services, a vital part of developing affordable housing that’s a platform for community change. She forged partnerships with cities and nonprofits to grow existing programs and implemented a Community Needs Assessment to better focus services.
As Vice President, Natalie oversees a team of 30+ onsite staff, including Community Impact managers, Resident Services and Community Engagement Coordinators at Jamboree properties. She leads the ongoing development and delivery of service programs that are responsive to the specific needs
of a given community and gives oversight to quantifying the impact of these services in the lives of Jamboree residents. This means that outcomes are measured
so that programming can be adapted to changing needs for goals to be achieved.
Since coming to Jamboree, Natalie and her team have made a shift in the planning and delivery of services via innovative Community Collaboratives
. She works with Jamboree’s housing development team to identify and bring together a nexus of local community partners to offer customized services available not only to Jamboree residents, but surrounding neighborhoods as well.
Previously, Natalie served as Senior Vice President for National CORE, an affordable housing developer in Southern California. There she was responsible for operations of its social service nonprofit, the Hope Through Housing Foundation, where she developed and managed outcome-driven programming initiatives.
Natalie believes in the power of strong partnerships as they allow diverse perspectives and innovative thinking to occur. They offer the ability to leverage the best of people, ideas and resources in one organization with the best in another organization, leading to greater outcomes.
With a young, active daughter, Natalie and her husband enjoy getting outdoors at the park, beach, or local playgrounds. They also vacation with friends and family around the country. Other favorite wanderings include visits to the zoo in Santa Barbara, hiking and snowboarding in Mammoth and Tahoe, hailing cabs in New York, or checking out graffiti art in Miami.Guiding principle
: Everyone deserves an opportunity. Connecting housing and services provides that much-needed opportunity for so many people.
