For more than two decades, the Guadalupe Valley Habitat For Humanity board has worked tirelessly to help community members get a second chance.

Throughout those years, the board along with scores of volunteers have built moderately priced homes for people.

With that comes a great deal of paperwork and administrative duties. However, the board has taken care of all of that, spending even more volunteer hours handling those tasks.

Soon, though, they will be handing the administrative reins to a paid employee, a first for the local nonprofit.

With big goals of increasing the number of builds per year, increasing revenue in the store, creating a home improvement program and continuing to support Habitat For Humanity International, the board needs a full-time employee.

They need someone who will help maintain what has already been put in place and push the nonprofit forward.

They need someone who will be available for potential homeowners who have questions about the application or need assistance. They need someone who will help recruit more volunteers.

With the assistance of a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, they can begin that process.

Hopefully, they’ll find that person who can help make them even more successful for the next couple of decades to come.
