On June 7th, we will welcome in our new Executive Director, Tara Hill. Along with everyone else here at Habitat, I am excited for this next chapter that she will help to usher in. Her experience, ideas, and dedication, combined with our wonderful staff, will only lead to great things in the future!
Of course, this also means that I will be stepping down as Interim Executive Director. It has been a wonderful experience – am honored that the Board entrusted me in this role. It has been wonderful to be able to work much more closely with staff, our families, and volunteers. My favorite saying about Habitat is that it is a hand up, not a hand out. I have a deep appreciation of how many hands come together at our affiliate to help others lift themselves up.
And of course, I leave knowing that the organization is in great hands. Than you all so much for you r help and please join me in welcoming Tara to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland.
