Please help us welcome our new Community Engagement and Outreach Coordinator, Ivelisse Mercado! We asked Ivelisse to introduce herself to our community — please feel free to reach out and introduce yourself to her, too!
As Chapel Hill native raised in Durham, I am thrilled to be a part of the Community Home Trust team. I recently moved back to North Carolina from New York where I worked as a Community Engagement Coordinator for Grant Associates and Fedcap.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Since graduating, I have spent years working directly with the public to provide services in the workforce development. Although my background is primarily in workforce development, I have always had a passion for addressing the needs of her community head on by volunteering, being an advocate, and providing information regarding resources.
In my spare time, I enjoy painting, reading, and being outdoors.
As Community Engagement and Outreach Coordinator, I will work with the Communications and Marketing team to cultivate relationships, engage with new communities, conduct orientations, and plan and attend community events. I am excited about joining the Community Home Trust team and eager to assist community members with fulfilling their dreams by being homeowners. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-338-2456.
