Amie Fishman

Executive Director, Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California (NPH)

Amie Fishman is the Executive Director of the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California (NPH), a membership organization working to make the Bay Area a place where everyone has an affordable and stable home. As the backbone organization for the affordable homes community since 1979, NPH creates the environment and generates the essential elements – land, funding, supportive policies and political will – for developing, preserving and operating service-enriched affordable homes for low-income individuals and families, seniors, veterans and people with disabilities.

Amie joined NPH in January of 2015 and has over 20 years of experience in the affordable housing and community development field. At NPH, she has launched a new initiative to grow public support and political will for affordable homes in the Bay Area through ballot measure campaigns. Prior to NPH, Amie was Executive Director of East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO) from 2006 to 2014. During her tenure there, she initiated major affordable housing advocacy campaigns with broad based community coalitions, developed strong membership committees, initiated a resident organizing program, and deepened EBHO’s work throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties to advance local and regional policies for affordable housing and sustainable and equitable transit‐oriented development. 

Amie also worked as the Director of Supportive Housing at Mission Housing Development Corporation (MHDC) in San Francisco for 10 years, directing MHDC’s supportive housing programs and community organizing collaborations for homeless and formerly homeless adults and families. Amie holds an MPA in public policy analysis with a focus on affordable housing and community development from the Wagner School of Public Service at NYU.
