Lila Anna leads Homeless No More as its Chief Executive Officer and works to implement the organization’s ambitious strategic plan. With the board of directors and staff, she develops community partnerships and coalitions, launches new initiatives, and oversees operations of its many programs and services that directly affect the lives of homeless and at-risk families with children in the Midlands. Lila Anna joined Homeless No More and its primary program, St. Lawrence Place, in 2005 before becoming CEO in 2007.

Through the recent strategic expansion of Homeless No More, she led a dedicated team in the creation of a continuum of care for at-risk and homeless families that includes Family Shelter (emergency shelter), St. Lawrence Place (two-year transitional housing) and Live Oak Place (permanent affordable housing). She also received her national certification in affordable housing development in 2016.

She is active in advocating for homeless families and education on local, state and national levels. Lila Anna has spent years working in schools throughout the Midlands through the McKinney-Vento programs to make sure homeless and at-risk children are given the tools necessary to achieve, and was elected to the Richland School District One Board of Commissioners in 2016.

She is an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College, where she serves on the graduate studies advisory committee. She is also a guest lecturer for the schools of Social Work and Education at the University of South Carolina. Lila Anna and her team have presented nationally on the programs they created and implemented at Homeless No More.

Lila Anna is a graduate of the University South Carolina with a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications. She holds a MA in Organizational Change and Leadership from Columbia College, is a fellow of both the Blue Ridge Institute and the Riley Institute of Diversity at Furman University, and has her national certification as an Affordable Housing Finance Professional. She is currently working on her PhD in Organizational Leadership at Northeastern University.

She is the proud mother of five boys, ages 6 (twins) to 17, and she and her husband Brad spend most of their free time outside or on the ball fields.
