Mary Nelson

Mary Nelson was for 27 years the founding President and CEO of Bethel New Life, a faith based community development corporation focused on its low-income, African American west side Chicago community. Under her leadership the organization’s budget grew from $9,600 to over $14 million a year and almost 350 employees. More importantly, Bethel has been a pioneering leader in building sustainable community based on the strengths and capacities of people and places that others had written off as a ghetto. Under her leadership, Bethel, using the community’s assets, developed over 1,200 units of affordable housing, pioneered in energy efficient transit related development and brought jobs and businesses into the community.
