National Housing Leader Adds Healthcare and Finance Expertise to Board of Directors

CSH, a national nonprofit helping communities create the housing that transforms the lives of vulnerable individuals and families, has welcomed two new Board members: a prominent healthcare executive with extensive Medicaid experience and a nationally recognized accounting and finance expert.

“We are pleased to add the considerable talents of Charles Milligan and Paula Morabito to our CSH family,” said Deborah De Santis, President and CEO of CSH. “Charles is recognized as a leading voice nationally for Medicaid expansion and the crucial role stable housing plays in a person’s health status and outcomes. And in addition to understanding complex business issues, Paula will lend a great deal of her experience to ensuring we continue to have the best internal controls that have earned us praise among funders and national rating agencies.”

De Santis said Milligan’s current position with UnitedHealthcare Community Plan will aid CSH as it works with health systems across the country to increase partnerships between housing and healthcare organizations and urges states and providers to turn to Medicaid resources to finance supportive housing services.

She further said Morabito comes to the Board at a time when CSH is expanding its loans and grant offerings designed to increase the supply of supportive housing in every state. Last year, CSH announced it had surpassed $650 million in loans and grants for supportive housing creation, and was on course to deliver new financial instruments to spur further development over the next five years.
