I’m excited to be here in Thomasville, to fulfill Habitat’s mission, and to revive the affiliate, especially during this challenging pandemic crisis. By strengthening our accountability and engaging the community I see a bright future with workforce housing expansion and ReStore sales.
We've built quite a team
Chief Executive Officer
I take care of the administrative side of Thomasville Habitat—from applicant intake to filing to chart the accounts. I see Habitat evolving largely by removing many of the barriers and management styles of the past and bringing them into line with a new, positive approach. I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing team.
I plan, build, and encourage Habitat’s growth and development. I see us building more homes and gaining a stronger foothold in the community to promote our mission. Our key is to not only build more homes, but to build up each individual we come into contact with and empower them to learn that life is about growing and giving. I would love to see Thomas and surrounding counties form a partnership to both build homes and put forth the needed effort to expand our communities together.
I supervise our ReStore staff and volunteers; receive, price and display donations for sale; answer questions about merchandise; advise on the installation and use of purchases; arrange for donation pickups; manage cash receipts from purchases; load purchases and unload donations; assist on construction site as needed and available. I am excited about the forward and upward movement I see in the future of our Habitat for Humanity.
…and a diverse board of directors
I believe in the mission of the organization. As a Workforce/Employment Specialist I believe that I can offer perspective and experience that will improve homeowner relations. This affiliate is poised to grow and present a model program for what workforce housing can be in a rural area. I am excited about the leadership that is currently in place and look forward to seeing what the future holds. I believe that we can develop realistic goals and a shared vision that will result in positive changes for this community.
As we deal with the ramifications of COVID-19 on housing security in the months and years to come, it is going to be more important than ever that TTCHFH continues to increase the supply of affordable workforce housing in Thomas County. Recognizing the unmet need for Habitat services in nearby counties, TTCHFH is planning to expand its coverage area over the next few years. We are in the process of building capacity and instituting a framework to support this growth.
With a background in banking, I enjoy helping people have affordable housing and relish in the growth of our communities. TTHFH is growing communities again. I would love to see us take over more counties to assist families throughout SW Georgia and am so excited to have a strong CEO and core group at the helm!
