The Greater Fairfield Area Habitat for Humanity (GFAHFH) is excited to announce that the nonprofit will soon be hiring its first-ever Executive Director. The ED will manage the daily operations of the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and will oversee its programs, including communicating and collaborating with the community.
Board President Jhonna Wallerich says, “We at the Fairfield Area Habitat affiliate would love to do even more for those who need decent housing in our community, but our busy affiliate has reached a point where we need a skilled, energetic employee to direct the organization through our numerous projects.” The position will start out as a part-time one, with the possibility of eventually growing into full-time.
The GFAHFH is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, located in Fairfield, Iowa. Habitat for Humanity partners with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. GFAHFH has been building in Fairfield since 1995, having built eleven brand-new homes and renovated numerous others. The new Executive Director will come on board in time for GFAHFH to build house number 12 in 2016. Plans are also underway to roll out an exciting new program, and the executive director will have the opportunity to forge relationships in the community and lead GFAHFH through this new, exciting phase. Those who may be interested in the open position should email info@fairfieldhabitat.org. A full job description may be found at www.FairfieldHabitat.org.
