Description

Melissa Rice presents "When Business and Compassion Collide” at the December 18th Sanibel Captiva ABWA meeting. As Executive Director of Community Housing and Resources, Inc., Rice has inspiring stories and lessons to share about leadership in this collision zone.

Melissa built her busniess career in south Florida on both coasts in commercial real estate investment and management, including apartment communities, land and residential. She holds degrees in finance and economics, is a licensed Florida real estate broker, and a member of CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment).

In parallel, Melissa has a strong commitment to philanthropy, and immediately began volunteer work when she arrived in Sanibel 12 years ago. Melissa has served on the SanCap Cares Committee and as Treasurer for both the Sanibel PTA and CHR.

“The most important aspect of bringing philanthropy and business together is managing partnerships,” said Rice. “For example, support from the City of Sanibel, community participation in Give Back Wednesdays, generous women’s education grants from Zonta and scholarships from Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis are critical to CHR.”

CHR provides affordable Sanibel housing to those working full time on-island and longtime residents who are retired or disabled. CHR manages 88 housing units, including 74 rental properties — one of which is a 12-unit complex just for senior residents — and 14 Limited Equity Ownership homes.
