HABITAT FOR HUMANITY LANSING ANNOUNCES NEW LEADERSHIP

Lansing – Habitat for Humanity Lansing has announced that Vicki Hamilton-Allen has been selected to serve as the organization’s executive director, effective June 2, 2014.

Hamilton-Allen, who succeeds Denise Paquette, has extensive administrative, fundraising and communications experience. She was most recently employed as a Major Gifts Officer for the American Red Cross. She also held an executive position with the British government and worked with multiple companies that comprised the U.K.’s National New Home Construction Industry.

“The board and staff are excited that Vicki’s assuming this important role,” said board chair Mike Britt. “With her experience and qualifications, we expect that she’ll hit the ground running, expand the organization’s reach and increase our effectiveness.”

“It’s a new day at Habitat for Humanity Lansing,” added Heather LaFave, the organization’s manager of homeowner services. “We’re looking forward to welcoming Vicki and working with her to take this organization to the next level.”

Habitat for Humanity Lansing has built or rehabilitated over 100 homes in Greater Lansing since 1987. The organization’s mission is to eliminate substandard housing in the community – improving local neighborhoods – and to help disadvantaged families achieve their dream of safe, decent and affordable home ownership. This Habitat for Humanity affiliate has invested more than $5 million in our local housing market.
