(Brookings, SD, June 28, 2022) – Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity’s Lead Mission Officer
Dan McColley has been named to the U.S. Council of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI).
The Council was established by its board of directors to guide the growth of Habitat’s work in the United States and are the policy setting body for all U.S. affiliates. They serve as a voice of affiliates on policy matters and advise HFHI staff and board on direction and priorities of U.S. programs.
“It’s an honor to be part of this small group that has a large impact on Habitat operations,” McColley said.
In addition to his work with Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity and this recent appointment, McColley continues working with the HFHI Executive Task Force to develop a collaborative operating model for Habitats nationwide.
“Our work in Brookings has shown that even smaller affiliates can make big differences in the community,” McColley said. “I look forward to helping shape policies that assist Habitat operations of all sizes in our work to bring affordable housing options to communities everywhere.” Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1995 and sold its first house in April of 1996. It is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity-International, founded in 1976, and is currently working to build its 81st home – building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
