Neighborhood Housing Services is happy to welcome 3 new staff members to our organization. Bob Shepard, Director of Development; Evelina Bennett, Accountant; and Jillian Hanes, Grant Development Specialist have all joined NHS within the past 3 months.

Bob Shepard is an entrepreneur, former Boise State University adjunct professor, and USAF veteran. He taught several courses on entrepreneurship, and successfully raised millions of dollars and created 1,000 jobs through economic development in three states.  Bob’s collaborative skills and experience with economic development are great assets to the NHS team - assets that will allow our organization to become more strategic and innovative.

Evelina Bennett, a Boise State graduate, brings over 10 years of accounting experience in both non profit and for profit settings. She is currently enrolled in the BSU Masters Accountancy with Taxation program.  Evelina’s previous work experience combined with her current accounting education give NHS a more proficient accounting department.

Jillian Hanes, a recent Boise State graduate, has a BA in English with a technical communication certificate. She interned this past summer with NHS, and made over $15,000 for our organization through grant development. Jillian’s extensive research skills and writing ability offer great support to our Grant Development team.

We are pleased to welcome these new staff members, and look forward to integrating their valuable skills into NHS so we can continue to fulfill our mission in even more innovative ways.
