Stephanie Berman-Eisenberg (born May 13, 1972) is an American businesswoman who has been President/CEO of Carrfour Supportive Housing since 2006.


Berman-Eisenberg has a master's degree in administration, planning, and social policy from Harvard University's Graduate School of Education, and a bachelor's degree from Brandeis University.[1][2]


In 2011, Berman-Eisenberg co-founded Operation Sacred Trust, a collaboration of social service agencies with a shared commitment to disrupting homelessness for South Florida veteran families. Between 2011 and 2020, the public-private collaboration succeeded in winning more than $15 million in federal grant funds for the initiative from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families program to provide housing prevention and rapid rehousing services to more than 8,000 very low-income veterans and their family members in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.[3]

Berman-Eisenberg oversees a current inventory of more than 1,700 supportive and affordable housing units and "has led the effort to assemble more than $200 million in funding to develop an additional 500 units over the coming years."[4][5][6]

She serves on the City of Miami Beach Affordable Housing Committee, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Affordable Housing Committee, and the JPMorgan Chase Community Advisory Committee.[1] In 2011, The Miami Herald named her as one of South Florida's "20 most influential leaders under the age of 40."[7] In 2017, she was selected for The Miami Herald's CEO Roundtable.[8][9]

Her articles on homelessness in Miami have been published on the Opinion Page of The Miami Herald, including "Stadium plan to house homeless no slam dunk,"[10] "A step forward for homeless vets,"[11] and "Fighting homelessness in Miami."[12]

A 2012 Huffington Post article featured Operation Sacred Trust as a new model for ending veteran homelessness.[13] Berman-Eisenberg was named one of the most "Influential Business Women" by the South Florida Business Journal in 2013 and 2014.[14] She was featured in a national profile for Commercial Property Executive in January 2014.[15]

In April 2020, Berman-Eisenberg urged policy-makers to rapidly respond to COVID-19's impact on a South Florida housing market that was already stressed. "Our community did not have enough affordable housing before the pandemic and we are not prepared for the onslaught that is coming our way."[16]
