Allison Allbee’s Healthy Housing Work Recognized with Fulcrum Fellowship

February 5, 2018

Congratulations to our program director Allison Allbee, who has been selected to be a Fulcrum Fellow by the Center for Community Investment!

The Fulcrum Fellowship—a 15-month program for rising executives in population health, climate resilience, community development, urban planning, and community investment—will use a series of seminars to build the capacity of its fellows to help disinvested communities achieve their environmental, social, and economic goals. Allison’s work on ChangeLab Solutions’ healthy housing portfolio positioned her to receive this honor. She currently co-directs the BLOCK Project, which explores housing strategies to improve health equity.

Allison will be 1 of 12 diverse professionals from across the country working to address a significant strategic challenge facing their organization or community. The fellows will build their skills in areas such as adaptive leadership and collaboration, broaden their vision, and strengthen their networks. The overall goal is to sharpen the fellows’ ability to advance strategies that overcome barriers to community investment and promote healthier, more sustainable communities.

“I can’t imagine a better moment to be connecting with leaders across the country who have such deep and unflinching love for their communities,” says Allison. "We are in need of a reinvigorated vision of possibilities: how local governments and institutions can support the health and well-being of their residents. This fellowship offers me an opportunity to draw from a well of inspiration and bring back ideas and tools that will enliven our work.”
