Adolph “Val” Valfre

Val Valfre served on the Community Housing Fund Board for more than a decade, and as its chair for many of those years. In this role he consistently pushed both staff and peers to demand high standards and accountability from borrowers and partnering jurisdictions, alike. During the past year, he may have retired from his full-time position as director of Washington County’s Housing Authority, but in “retirement” he continues to serve the community and our industry in many roles including:  Chair of Oregon’s Housing Stability Council, on The Advisory Committee for Oregon’s Veterans’ Affairs, and as a Forest Grove City Councilor. Val motivates all of us to do our best as we work to ensure all Oregonians have a safe place to call home.
