Jasmine Boyle selected as agency’s next Chief Operating Officer

The Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc., (RurAL CAP) named Jasmine Boyle the new Chief Operating Officer, starting on December 1, 2021.

For the past three years, Boyle has served our Anchorage and Alaskan communities as the Executive Director of the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH). In those years, she developed crucial partnerships, strengthened advocacy networks, and created necessary tools and programs to combat homelessness. Her steadfast commitment to serving people living in challenging circumstances has positioned her as a champion for working toward the alleviation of poverty.

While Boyle transitions from ACEH, she will continue to address issues of housing and homelessness across Anchorage while further strengthening the coordination of services. As RurAL CAP’s COO, she will expand her focus to address poverty across the state and will combat its negative impacts on the health and well-being of Alaskans.

“I am excited to be joining the RurAL CAP team and eager to serve to improve the well-being of Alaskans statewide,” said Jasmine Boyle. “RurAL CAP’s vision of healthy Alaskans living in sustainable communities is personal and close to my heart and I look forward to partnering to make this vision a reality.”

Boyle brings two decades of work in public, private, and nonprofit experience to RurAL CAP’s mission that improves the quality of life for Alaskans living with low incomes. The COO is responsible for developing, leading, and ensuring the effectiveness of the organization’s operations.

“We are excited and fortunate to have Jasmine join our RurAL CAP team,” said L. Tiel Smith, RurAL CAP CEO. “Her wide-ranging expertise and deep commitment to our Alaskan communities will be an invaluable asset to RurAL CAP’s mission.”

Originally from Los Angeles, Boyle holds a Master in Business Administration degree from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and a Master of Science in Human Services degree from Bellevue University. She proudly serves on the board of the Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness and the National Coalition to End Urban Indigenous Homelessness. 

Founded in 1965, RurAL CAP is a private, statewide, nonprofit organization with a mission to empower low-income Alaskans through advocacy, education, affordable housing and direct services that respect our unique values and cultures. RurAL CAP is one of the largest and most diversified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Alaska.
