About MHDC

  In 1991, the Montebello City Council established the Montebello Housing Development Corporation (MHDC) in response to the findings of the Redevelopment Agency's five year Affordable Housing Strategic Plan.

In November 1992, The MHDC was incorporated as a public service nonprofit agency. Working closely with the city's Economic Development Department, Board members made the homeownership by first time homebuyers of low-to moderate income a priority in the business of the corporation.

In December of 1999, the Board of Directors separated from the administrative relationship with the city. In July of 2000, the corporation relocated its offices and began recruiting its own administrative staff. This goal was achieved by November of 2001 with the appointment of key staff.   The Board took into consideration the ethnic diversity of the community in determining the make-up of the administrative staff.

As of July 2003, the staffing needs have been met. MHDC's staff currently consist of 4 full time and 2 part time employees to implement the corporation's programs and to address the day-to day business of the corporation.  The corporation is managed by a capable and experienced Executive Committee.  President Robert Monzon, Chief Financial Officer Par Renteria and Vice President Jaime Legaspi.

The day to day operation of the organization is left to Operations Manager Anne Vilagut an experienced manager and supervisor overseeing staff and programs.  Contact her for information about our programs and events at 323-722-3955.
