After 16 years with Virginia Housing, including eight years as its Managing Director of Community Outreach, Michael Hawkins has retired from his positions at Virginia Housing and as a member of HRV’s Advisory Board.
Throughout his career, which includes five years with the Newport News Redevelopment and Housing Authority, Mike has strived to expand affordable housing opportunities in Virginia and address the housing needs of minorities and diverse communities.
