As a consultant and executive coach, it has been my privilege to work with the Habitat for over eight years in different capacities as a professional. The agency staff and board are tireless in their commitment toward providing housing for families in need. Every individual within the agency has a genuine passion for the mission and goes "above and beyond: in their efforts to provide a quality home for as many families as possible. I am honored to work with such a dedicated and committed organization
