Affordable Housing Veteran Mia Jackson Joins Skid Row Housing Trust As Vice President

Last week, Skid Row Housing Trust announced that industry veteran Mia Jackson has joined the non-profit company as Vice President of Property Management. Mia brings more than 20 years of affordable housing, development, and property management experience to the new role. 

In her new role, Mia will be responsible for overseeing the trust’s property management division, including resident relations and high-level administrative operations. She will work closely with Asset Management and Real Estate Development on compliance and development matters, while collaborating with the Property Management staff to support residents in all aspects of their tenancy.

Prior to joining Skid Row Housing Trust, Jackson was the Associate Director of Operations and Asset Management with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. As the first person to serve in an Asset Management role at LAHSA, Mia created the departmental structure, provided oversight of its assets and developed processes that supported the agency’s long-term operational vision.

Jackson first began her affordable housing career at The Bedford Group, a Black-owned development and consulting firm that has been focused on urban infill projects in South Los Angeles for more than 30 years. During her time with the company, Mia cultivated her passion for housing and supported the development of over 1,000 low-income housing units.
