Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. – Jeré J. Thrasher has been appointed Chief Operating Officer of the Hope through Housing Foundation, Ciriaco “Cid” Pinedo, President of Hope through Housing, announced today.
Thrasher, also serving as Senior Vice President for National CORE (National CORE), will oversee day-to-day HTHF operations, as well as marketing and communications. Skilled in strategic development, Jeré’s passion for leading effective organizational change increases the capacity for HTHF to provide critical social services to residents and their communities. Prior to joining National CORE in 2014, Jeré served in national marketing and senior leadership roles with a couple of Fortune 500 companies, most recently as Vice President of Corporate Development.

During the past two decades, Hope through Housing has provided more than 2 million hours of human services for National CORE residents and surrounding neighborhoods, including preschool and afterschool programs, senior wellness services and special needs assistance. More recently, the organization has launched an economic mobility initiative that provides families with training in financial literacy, employability skills and how to move toward home ownership.
“National CORE and Hope through Housing have demonstrated over the years that addressing the poverty crisis requires a multilayered, collaborative approach,” Thrasher said. “At Hope, we are committed to providing residents with a hierarchy of services and the tools they need to improve their lives and to move from dependency to independence and prosperity. I look forward to contributing to both organizations in fulfilling our mission of transforming lives and the communities we serve.”
