Hope For New York’s New Executive Director: Elise Chong

March 2009

The Board of Hope for New York is pleased to announce that Elise Chong has been selected as Executive Director to lead the organization into its next chapter of service to our city. Elise emerged as the clear choice during a three month executive search process that culminated in the board’s unanimous vote in January, 2009. 
Her passion for Hope for New York’s mission and vision tightly coupled to her skills and insights for nurturing all of the relationships that make HFNY effective emerged as the most compelling attributes in support of the selection. Elise previously served as HFNY’s Associate Director and has been with the organization for over five years. Prior to HFNY, she has worked at other nonprofits in New York including World Vision and Covenant House. Elise is a native of Massachusetts and has lived in New York City for over twenty years.  
Please join the HFNY board, its staff, and the broader HFNY constituent community in congratulating Elise on her selection for this important leadership role.
