I was raised to lead by example and to live a fulfilling life. The satisfaction that comes with helping those in need is second only to the joy of being able to help them achieve their dreams. After learning of the many great things Habitat is doing right here in the community I live in, I knew that I had to be part of it. Working with an organization that makes it possible for struggling families to achieve the dream of home ownership is the ultimate fulfillment and being surrounded by people so willing to give brings out the best in all of us. I am glad to be here.
A friend of mine asked me to join the advisory committee some years ago, and after volunteering at a job site I was so impressed with the organization, enthusiasm and good work being done in the community that I ended up joining the Board and the PR Committee. Every year at work I put together a team to help with a project, and most of my co-workers get the Habitat ‘bug.’ It’s infectious.

What People are Saying
“A place to live & grow”
"Everyone—all of us, every last person on God’s earth—deserves decent shelter. It speaks to the most basic of human needs—our home—the soil from which all of us, every last person, either blossom or wither. We each have need of food, clothing, education, medical care, and companionship; but first, we must have a place to live and grow. "
Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity International
“What the poor need”
"What the poor need is not charity, but capital, not caseworkers but coworkers. "
“A hand up”
"We help people not by giving them a hand out, but by giving them a hand up. "
Kelly Kemmerer, Executive Director
“A home means many things”
"A home means many things to many people. It's a place where you feel nourishment. It gives a person a place to grow roots and to feel safe. "
Bill Snell, Site Supervisor
“There's not enough good in the world”
"There's not enough good in the world, so the more you can put into it, the better the future is going to be. "
