NHSIE selects Kailin Scott as their new CEO/Executive Director

January 9, 2023

As of January 1, 2023, it is with great pleasure that I announce that the Board of Directors of Neighborhood Housing Services of the Inland Empire has unanimously selected Kailin Scott as our Chief Executive Officer. During her tenure at NHSIE, Kailin has been instrumental in guiding NHSIE through a successful NeighborWorks’ Prompt Review and has been responsible for implementing the 2022- 2025 strategic plan which will focus our priorities as an innovative leader in the community. While these efforts would not have been possible without the hard work of our dedicated staff, it is Kailin who built a culture to refocus our organization by strengthening existing partnerships and forming new collaborations with stakeholders who share our vision. 

Kailin has gone above and beyond while serving as the agency’s Interim Director over the past nine months. She has provided stability during a transition, led our organization’s rebranding campaign that has proven to strengthen our position as a trusted partner in building wealth, providing services that increase both housing stability and homeownership among families in the Inland Empire, and created a productive and positive workplace culture. Kailin is a committed daughter of the Inland Empire, proven leader in the space of social services and community impact, and a true champion for NHSIE and its mission. 

As an Inland Empire native, Kailin Scott has established a deep connection with this region. She is a long-time resident of Murrieta who went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Cal Baptist University and an MBA from La Sierra University. Her education and her connection to our area of service have prepared her for this moment.

Kailin has over a decade of experience, both professionally and as a volunteer, building and maintaining long-standing connections to community-based organizations in both Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Committed to powerful and lasting civic outcomes, Kailin has dedicated her career towards helping to provide opportunities for development and progress which are available to everyone in need. Prior to NHSIE, Kailin did this via educational advocacy through the Center for Community and Social Impact powered by Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, CA. She has now set her sights on the affordable housing industry, prompting a message of housing as a foundational necessity for any form of social support to be truly impactful. 

We are excited and energized for the opportunity to encourage NHSIE’s new era of impact led by Kailin Scott. Please join me in congratulating Kailin as we look forward to supporting her in the years ahead. On behalf of the board and staff, we thank you for your continued partnership and investment in NHSIE.
