)-- XtraGlobex, Inc. today announced the appointment of Amy Snider as Senior Consultant for Strategy and Housing, focusing on accessible and affordable housing, new housing and group homes. Based in Pittsburgh, she will also lead new business development in Western Pennsylvania.
“Safe, affordable housing is a critical social determinant of health,” says Fady Sahhar, President of XtraGlobex. “Amy joins our team at a time when our work and advocacy revolve around the whole person, and while the advent of value-based payments forces providers to consider societal and environmental impact on health outcomes. We’re excited to tap Amy’s insights from working within public, private, and community funders to maximize our impact on behalf of our clients and high-need consumers.”
With nearly 30 years of experience, Amy’s background includes direct care work with vulnerable populations across the human services systems (i.e., rape crisis, homelessness, aging, child welfare, behavioral health, intellectual and developmental disabilities, workforce development, and affordable housing), and human service planning efforts with city, county, and state governments. Specific to housing, she has led innovative efforts to impact the availability of affordable and accessible housing with partners including the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), PA Housing Finance Agency (PHFA), the PA and Allegheny County Departments of Human Services (PADHS, ACDHS), Allegheny County Continuum of Care (CoC) for homeless programs and services, United Way of Southwestern PA’s 21 and Able initiative, ACTION-Housing, and numerous disability advocates.
"I’m delighted to come aboard XtraGlobex,” Amy said, “I look forward to helping it to enhance its position at the intersection of health, housing and social services.”
