OUR TOWNS HABITAT FOR HUMANITY NAMES NEW DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Jul 19, 2016

CORNELIUS, N.C. (July 19, 2016)Our Towns Habitat for Humanity is welcoming Denise Copeland to its leadership team as the organization’s new director of operations.

While new to Our Towns’ staff, Copeland is certainly not new to the organization. She has been a volunteer since 2002, when she got involved through her then-employer and strong partner of Habitat for Humanity, Lowe’s Home Improvement.

“I became hooked for the cause and have remained an ever more active participant year after year,” Copeland said of her passion for Habitat.

Copeland was a volunteer for Our Towns’ first Women Build and has been involved in every Women Build since. She has also served on the Finance and ReStore committees, as a board member for the past year, and led the past two affiliate mission trips to Guatemala.

Copeland will provide comprehensive oversight of the organization’s daily administrative, financial and operational functions, including enhancing internal processes and communication. Specifically, she will oversee the construction, family services, finance, human resources and ReStore divisions. In her new position, Copeland will also work with board members and staff leadership to develop a five-year strategic plan for Our Towns Habitat.

Copeland comes to Our Towns Habitat from Morton Salt Company, where she served as national account manager for Lowe’s, Orchard Supply Company and Menards. She brings experience in project and operations management, budgeting and forecasting, contract negotiations and new business development.

“We are thrilled to have someone with Denise’s skill set and passion for the Habitat for Humanity mission joining our leadership team,” said Executive Director Jeff Porter. “We are looking forward to having a fresh perspective on our operations as we work toward our mission of putting God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.”

Within Our Towns Habitat’s service area, more than 5,000 families currently live in substandard housing. New home construction is part of the solution to get families out of overcrowded and unsafe living conditions. In addition, critical home repairs have helped people in urgent need, uplifting lives and revitalizing neighborhoods.
