Born in Fresno, Adrian Jones began her tenure as a commissioner on the Housing Authority Board when she was a participant in the Housing Choice Voucher program of the Fresno Housing Authority. She has first-hand knowledge of Fresno’s affordable housing situation – having been both a voucher holder and also a former staff member at the Housing Authority. This unusual combination of experience makes Jones an especially valuable part of the Board.
Jones is currently employed as an Eligibility Worker with the Fresno County Department of Social Services. She participates in many professional and service organizations and committees, including Take a Stand, Man in the Mirror, the Mayor’s Citizens Academy, SEIU Local 521 Committee Action Team, District Three Planning Implementation Committee, and the National Association of African American Social Workers (NAASW).
