Safia Elogbi – Resident Services Coordinator- Community Partners for Affordable Housing

Safia started at CPAH as a social work intern in 2019 and was hired on as a Resident Services Coordinator in 2020, right before the pandemic. Safia advocates for CPAH’s marginalized residents, brings important perspectives to our work, and digs deeper pointing out things that may have been overlooked. In the fall of 2021, with the rent moratorium ending, Safia called, emailed, and left letters for over one hundred households to help connect them to rental assistance helping prevent the evictions of dozens of families. At the beginning of COVID-19, Safia worked with twenty households and connected them to job opportunities, unemployment, social security, and helped them create and manage a personal budget.
