Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area is looking for a new executive director as Kendra Heimbuck plans to leave the position in August.
Heimbuck has led the housing nonprofit since May 2016. She said she is leaving Jackson because her husband has taken a job as a pastor in Sheridan.
During her tenure with Habitat, Heimbuck has overseen progress at The Grove affordable housing development on Snow King Avenue. The complex is Teton Habitat’s largest project ever, with 24 units once completed.
“Through the Grove project, we have scaled up our impact, scaled up our efforts and also proven to ourselves and a little bit to the community that we can be a relevant housing provider in the community,” she said. “We can flex and bend and work to meet the needs that are persistent in the community.”
Heimbuck is proud that The Grove is “under budget and ahead of schedule,” with two buildings of condominiums under construction and plans to hand over the keys to the last of the affordable homes by June 2021.
She stressed the strength of Habitat’s board, volunteers and staff.
“Habitat has always been doing important and impactful work in the community,” she said.
The nonprofit continues to seek a new executive director.
