Pablo Zatarain’s passion for helping others- especially the most vulnerable households and families- led him to a career in Fair Housing. Pablo began his fair housing career with Project Sentinel in 2009, where he worked primarily with local residents in the South Bay and Peninsula regarding their specific fair housing complaints.
Pablo then worked at the National Fair Housing Alliance in Washington, DC, where he assisted in nationally-based fair housing investigations. This included the systemic review of major lenders’ maintenance practices of their Real Estate Owned (REO) property portfolios in various neighborhoods. He also helped work to establish the Denver Metro Fair Housing Center through a federal grant awarded to NFHA. The DMFHC is now a fully functioning local fair housing agency which serves the greater Denver Metro region.
Pablo came to Fair Housing Napa Valley in 2013, and has worked in his current role as Executive Director since late 2014. Since arriving at FHNV, Pablo has overseen the successful implementation of new and traditional FHNV programs, worked with staff to assist clients with their housing-related needs, and has also participated in regional coalitions and projects to continue meeting the needs of Napa County’s residents. He looks forward to serving the Greater Napa community for many years to come.
