Hello and Happy New Year to our wonderful Habitat supporters! I'd like to start off the year with an introduction. My name is John Shumadine and I am the new Interim Executive Director at Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland. I previously served on the Board of Directors, including as Board President. I am excited to lead our team through this transitional period as we search for a new Executive Director. We are excited for what is to come and are confident we will find the right fit for our organization.
We want to say thank you to our previous Executive Director Godfrey Wood, who stepped down at the end of 2020. He led Habitat through many important projects including the purchase of our ReStore and office building on Warren Avenue, the completion of our biggest project to-date in Scarborough, and the formation of our Critical Home Repair program. Thank you, Godfrey, for all your hard work and dedication over the years!
We look forward to a positive and productive 2021, and we wish you the same!
Interim Executive Director
