A Message from the ED

Stevie Craig-ED

Stevie Craig was appointed Executive Director of the Bladenboro and Bladen (formerly Clarkton and Elizabethtown HA's) Housing Authorities in April 2005. Stevie has over twenty-seven years of experience administering public housing programs, having previously served as the Assistant ED, the Section 8 Manager and Public Housing Manager for the Authorities. She successfully navigated the Authorities through consolidation of the Clarkton and Elizabethtown Housing Authorities into the newly formed Bladen Housing Authority as of 2017. She is a Fayetteville native and earned her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Mount Olive College.

Stevie's desire is for the Authorities to foster an environment and culture for participant families to achieve personal and economic upward mobility. Doing so will afford participants the opportunity to make the transition from assisted housing to the regular rental market.

The Executive Director's primary responsibility is to develop plans and procedures, make organizational decisions, manage the overall operations and resources of the Authorities, and act as the main point of communication between the Boards of Commissioners and the Authorities.
