Patricia Mitrokostas was hired as senior director of grants and foundation relations. She previously was the vice president of development at the YMCA Cape Cod and director of organizational advancement and public relations at Gosnold Treatment Center. Ms. Mitrokostas has taught grant writing at Cape Cod Community College for seven years as part of a non-profit certificate program and recently earned the status of Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE).

“We are thrilled to welcome Patty to Housing Assistance,” said Housing Assistance CEO Alisa Magnotta. “Her experience and expertise in maintaining strong connections within our community and working with foundations will serve our organization in immeasurable ways.”

Catherine Clark was promoted from assistant director of development to director of development. Clark joined the HAC staff in 2018 after working at Cape Cod Academy and Cape Cod Young Professionals.

“Catherine has proven many times to be an invaluable contributor to the team,” said Anne Van Vleck, chief development officer for Housing Assistance. “Her genuine care for our donors’ interests and her steadfast commitment to our mission is a winning combination. This promotion is very well-deserved, and I have no doubt she will excel in this leadership position.”

Kathryn Eident was hired as director of marketing and communications and marketing director. For the past six years, she was a familiar voice on the local NPR station, WCAI, where she was the “Morning Edition” host and senior producer of news.

“The housing crisis is something we’ve talked about all the time in the news and in longer conversations on the air,” she said. “The thought of being able to go from telling the story from the outside to being on the front lines working on addressing the housing crisis really appealed to me.”
