Haven for Hope, San Antonio’s largest homeless shelter, will soon have a new leader. Mark Carmona, the shelter's CEO, is stepping down.

Carmona’s resignation was first reported by the Rivard Report. Carmona has helmed the shelter since 2012, when he took over for then-CEO George Block.

Carmona will leave Haven for Hope in order to start a business that helps local families recover equity from repossessed homes.

“Our business will help them get their money out of the house and we will take a small finder’s fee. People who lose their homes think about finding shelter for their families, not the complicated process of getting their money out. We can offer the expertise and help them get their lives back,” Carmona said to the Rivard Report.

Part of the proceeds from the business will support humanitarian efforts in Honduras, where Carmona’s sister, a Catholic nun, worked for over a decade as a missionary.
