Habitat for Humanity welcomes new executive director

New Habitat For Humanity Executive Director, Glenn May-Anderson on-site at one of the new builds with Director of Construction, Deb Wilson.

Habitat for Humanity Prince Edward Hastings has appointed Glenn May-Anderson as its new executive director.

“During a year of revisioning our mission and role towards providing solutions in a growing housing crisis in our region, we embarked on an extensive selection process to rebuild the Habitat team,” said Jill Raycroft, Habitat’s board chair. “We are excited to welcome Glenn to our Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and look forward to working with him. Glenn shares our enthusiasm for the purpose and future of Habitat PEH and our respect for the trust that communities and stakeholders place in our organization.”

He joins Cassandra Boniface, who joined as the Community Engagement Manager a couple of months ago. May-Anderson follows Bob Clute in the position, following his retirement at the end of January.

Habitat’s newest builds include two new semi-detached buildings on Hannah Street in Trenton, launched in October, to provide homes for four local families. There is also a build under way on Leopold Street in Trenton. Its last build in Prince Edward County was in 2014.

May-Anderson has been a committed member of the Prince Edward Hastings region since moving to Belleville in 2004.

Raycroft notes he has extensive experience in the housing sector, retail operations, strategic planning, board governance, and public relations.

As executive director, May-Anderson will provide Habitat PEH leadership of the affiliate’s day-to-day operations, fundraising, and stakeholder, government and public relations.

“I am deeply honoured and very excited about the opportunity to serve the many communities within Prince Edward and Hastings Counties through Habitat for Humanity’s services,” said May-Anderson. “Housing is a critical issue, and the board and I firmly believe that we can be an important part of helping solve the crisis we are facing in our region. I am eager to work with our dedicated volunteers, donors, staff, social services agencies, the housing community, and local and regional governments to help eliminate poverty housing and make our region a place where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.”

Habitat for Humanity Prince Edward Hastings was formed in 1994 and began operations in 1995. Volunteers are welcome. Visit http://habitatpeh.org
