Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County honored
Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County was recently selected as a Best Practice Award Honoree at the Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota Outstanding Leadership and Excellence (OLE) Conference in Willmar in March. This is the fourth time the affiliate has been honored.
As a Best Practice Award Honoree, HFHDC will be available for other Habitat affiliates as a resource and mentor as they look to improve and expand upon their mission.
The honor recognized that HFHDC has equipped itself well to build and repair energy efficient, healthy and sustainable homes for families in need of safe and affordable housing.
HFHDC has expanded its programs to include A Brush with Kindness and Critical Home Repair, hired a full-time construction manager, strengthened its site supervisor structure and has worked to diversify its funding sources to support its ability to serve more families.
“We are so thankful for the outstanding work of our volunteers and the generous support of our community,” said Lori Anderson, HFHDC executive director. “It is because of this amazing support we have been able to set a benchmark for excellence as we partner with families in need of safe and affordable housing.”
