Habitat for Humanity is currently seeking a full-time Regional Housing Manager.
In preparation for the 2021 launch of physical redevelopment of Southwood, Habitat is restructuring
operations in order to double our current building production capacity. The Regional Housing Manager will be central in helping the organization achieve the next step in its growth, while specifically addressing housing needs identified by the communities of Louisa and Greene Counties.
For approximately two decades, operations in Louisa and Greene have largely been undertaken by exceptionally committed volunteer steering committees. The chapters in Louisa and Greene have operated under Habitat’s 501 (c) 3 and reported to Habitat’s CEO and Board of Directors. Beginning in Fiscal Year 2020, operations in the two counties began to merge with central office operations in order to significantly increase the scale of impact across the three areas of the strategic plan. Whereas the two chapters have been building or rebuilding about 1-3 homes collectively per year, the combined goal over the next five years is to build 30 homes, conduct 80 critical home repairs and serve 200 more families via advocacy.
The Regional Housing Manager will work with key stakeholders – the Habitat CEO and Senior Leadership Team; members of the Greene and Louisa county Operating Committees and volunteers, the Habitat Land Development and Construction team and others – to develop and implement an operational plan to meet the goals of the affiliate’s five year strategic plan.
