Who We Are

Board

A Word From the Board of Directors

As one of the founders of our local affiliate, I have seen our organization work to provide a common-sense solution to affordable home-ownership. Over the last 22 years, I can safely say that we have maintained our trajectory by being inspired. Our people inspire us: Habitat homeowners, volunteers, donors, community partners, and staff. This tremendous support enabled us to successfully navigate our way to become a larger affiliate with one commitment —to help provide safe, decent and affordable housing solutions beyond home construction.

We are invigorated and energized by the number of talented and enthusiastic individuals within our Habitat family who continue to inspire us daily. The Henderson Habitat story is a powerful mosaic of experiences that have motivated our actions and accomplishments in the last year— a transitional year for our organization as we dared to take chances on solutions we may have never considered otherwise.
