Darlene Newsom, the longtime CEO of the UMOM New Day Centers, will step down from her role at the end of the year.

The nonprofit known for helping to lift people out of homelessness will undertake a national search for Newsom's replacement, officials said.

“Our board is deeply grateful to Darlene for her 18 years of service, advocacy and leadership to UMOM and the many clients served by the agency during her tenure," said Kristine Newman, UMOM board president, in a statement.

Newsom was the person behind UMOM's growth in the Valley as it expanded to offer more than 500 units of affordable housing as well as numerous programs under a $22 million annual budget. Her last day will be Dec. 31.
