HomeShare Vermont elected Kelly Deforge, of Essex Junction, to head the non-profit’s 15-member board of directors at their recent annual meeting.
Deforge has been on the board since 2007 and served as Vice President for the past two years. Deforge is a Senior Mortgage Loan Originator with Union Bank and has been in the mortgage industry for over 20 years. She also volunteers with the Howard Center as the Co-Chair of the CYFS Advisory Committee and she sits on the loan committee at Champlain Housing Trust.
“At a time when many homesharing programs around the country are struggling, we have developed a program that has excelled. We have done this thanks to a strong volunteer base, a generous community and an excellent board and staff. Our programs align with the culture of Vermont: neighbors helping each other, self-sufficiency and self- reliance,” said Deforge.
Deforge lives in Essex Junction with her husband and two sons.
