Katy Fuerst

Director of Programming & Community Engagement

Katy Fuerst joined HFLA of Northeast Ohio in 2016 and currently serves as the Director of Programming and Community Engagement. She is a Certified Financial Counselor and is passionate about financial empowerment, racial equality, and wealth building for all members of society. Prior to joining HFLA, Katy worked in foreclosure prevention efforts and home-ownership counseling at CHN Housing Partners and in workforce development at El Barrio/The Centers. She holds a Bachelor’s of Arts in Sociology from Cleveland State University and is currently pursuing her Master’s of Nonprofit Administration from John Carroll University. Katy loves working at HFLA because she sees interest-free loans as a tool to financially educate and empower those who are not yet eligible for traditional financing, and because she enjoys meeting and collaborating with different organizations in Northeast Ohio.
