Sara Lindholm
Regional Director of Development (Retired), The Community Builders, Inc.

A retired developer of affordable housing, Sara began her work at City Lands Corporation, the development affiliate of the South Shore Bank of Chicago. After seventeen years, she moved on to develop large-scale HOPE VI projects in Arkansas and New Jersey, and then in Chicago and throughout the Midwest for The Community Builders, Inc., a national non-profit. Working within disinvested communities over the years, she became keenly aware of the constellation of factors now labelled “the social determinants of health” and of the critical need for policy changes and resources beyond affordable housing to level the playing field. She was introduced to Quentin Young and Health and Medicine Policy Research Group while managing the Illinois Affordable Assisted Living Program, helping non-profits to develop Supportive Living Facilities for frail seniors. She joined Health and Medicine’s Board in 2004.
