Welcome Jodi!

Rice County Habitat for Humanity and Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity are thrilled to announce the hiring of Jodi Beach as a shared Volunteer Coordinator. Jodi brings years of experience as an elementary School teacher, along with her enthusiasm as a volunteer with the Farmington Library system to our affiliates, and both are in need of Jodi’s help to recruit and encourage volunteers for our build season. Rice County has set a goal of building five homes this year, and Goodhue County will build one, renovate one and begin a build with the Red Wing School system. These are ambitious goals aimed directly at the problem of affordable housing in our communities. Many volunteers will be needed and Jodi’s skills will be a great asset in the effort. We are grateful to Habitat for Humanity International and a grant from Housing and Urban Development (HUD Section 4), who has helped fund this position. Rice and Goodhue have been working over the years to find ways to collaborate in an effort to use resources more effectively. This latest collaboration is an experiment for HFHI and one that we think we set a course for other Habitat affiliates to think outside the box. We are excited to see what Jodi will bring to our ministry. We hope you have a chance to meet her soon!
