As a community development organization, we are all about our people.

Housing Alexandria’s staff and board are made up of passionate professionals who feel that the path to community growth runs right through access to housing people can afford. Many of us live within the City of Alexandria; all of us are passionate about the future of this city and our region.

Our Staff

Jonathan Frederick

Jon Frederick, President and CEO

Jon has served as the President/CEO of Housing Alexandria since 2015.  During his tenure the organization has grown from a small team of one staff member with under 200 units of rental housing to a team of sixteen with approximately 900 units owned with an additional 500 units under construction.  During this time, he has overseen the development and implementation of two strategic plan initiatives.  The most recent plan, Beyond Units, shifted Housing Alexandria’s mission as one focused solely on the provision of affordable rental housing to one of a full-scale community development organization working at the intersection housing, services, community partnerships, and equity building.

Prior to joining Housing Alexandria, Jon worked in several positions in community development, most notably as a housing analyst for the City of Alexandria and a real estate development director for Volunteers of America.  He holds a master’s degree in urban planning and sits on several boards and commissions including the Alexandria Housing Affordability Advisory Committee, the Northern Virginia Affordable Housing Alliance leadership council, and the Grounded Solutions Network Board of Directors.  In his free time, he enjoys reading, traveling, and exploring great urban spaces and our national parks.  He lives in Alexandria, VA with his wife and daughter.
