He then was Director of Housing in the Governor's Office and worked for the City of Providence. Under his leadership the Alliance has grown from a $20,000.00 a year organization to a $200,000.00 budget in 2019. The Alliance purchased its headquarters in 2010 becoming one of only 12 Alliances in the USA owning their home.
