Rick Presbrey was the President, CEO and Founder of the Housing Assistance Corporation until
his retirement in March of 2017. Under Rick’s leadership the agency grew from one and a half
staff members and an annual budget of $32,000.00 to 125 staff members and total annual expenditures of
nearly $30m. It is estimated that HAC helped approximately 100,000 unduplicated people
through its 37 different programs. HAC was known to be creative and caring and committed to
helping anyone and everyone in the region that is facing a housing crisis.
Funding, always the key to success of any enterprise, came from a variety of sources including
local, county, state and federal governments, donations, sponsorships, fees, services, events,
rents and grants from foundations and businesses. Through the years HAC, and Rick on behalf
of the agency, received many awards and recognitions for the accomplishments in its especially
client centered work often most successfully in partnership with other organizations.
