Board of Directors

CCHLT is proud to have a Board of Directors who are active community members and also serve on various committees for CCHLT.  As a community land trust, our team represents the diversity we strive for as a community with members from the general public, community organizations, public officials, and CLT residents (past, present, and future).

Currently, CCHLT’s Bylaws allow for twelve members to serve on the Board of Directors.  Five members of the Board of Directors must come from our partner organizations with one person appointed from each organization: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Centre County (HFHGCC), Housing Authority of Centre County (HACC), Housing Transitions Inc. (HTI), State College Borough (SCB), and State College Community Land Trust (SCCLT). We are honored to have the following individuals serving on our Board of Directors.

Interested in joining our team?

There is always room at our table for more helpers in our efforts to bring more affordable homes into reality in Centre County. Please contact Executive Director, Missy Schoonover at if you would be interested in partnering with CCHLT. Below are just two of our immediate needs for volunteers:

Development and Corporate Partnerships
CCHLT is a 501(c)(3) agency, that depends upon the generous support of our friends and neighbors for our financial solvency. We are looking for individuals and business leaders to come alongside us to develop and direct fundraising strategies, develop a major gift program, campaigns for major land acquisitions, and identify donor prospects at all levels.

Communications & Outreach
Are you a communications or social media expert? We would love to have your skills to assist us as we develop and direct all forms of communications to build and maintain a positive, active presence in the community to maximize community engagement and support.
