Habitat Hires New Executive Director, Seeks Applications For Next Home Build

From Local Sources 

DUBOIS COUNTY -- Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County is currently accepting applications for the next future Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County homeowner until April 11, 2019. Applications for homeownership can be printed at Habitat’s website, duboishabitat.org, or picked up at the ReStore Wednesday thru Friday 11:00 am until 5:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. The ReStore is located at 4232 S 170 E in Huntingburg. 

Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County believes that all hard-working individuals and families should have access to the benefit and stability of homeownership. Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, ability to repay a no-profit mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat. The low cost of our homes is made possible through generous donors, dedicated volunteers, and ongoing community support.

Andrea Ward, the new executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County, says, “I’m excited to step into the role of executive director by opening the application process for our next Habitat homeowner.” Ward has previous experience with Habitat for Humanity as the volunteer workforce manager at Habitat for Humanity of Evansville but has been involved with Habitat affiliates through volunteering and internships since 2006. She has a BS in Construction Management and Design and a MS in Industrial Management from Southeast Missouri State University. “Habitat has long been a passion of mine. I could talk for hours on the benefits of homeownership through Habitat for Humanity and the impact it has not only on a single homeowner, but on the community as a whole.

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, community and hope.
