Episode 6 : Get Out of Your Comfort Zone - Becca Halbert
Becca Halbert is the Deputy Director of Development at Austin Habitat for Humanity. I've had the honor of working with her over the past couple of years during my involvement with Habitat. Becca never ceases to amaze me with positive attitude, acumen for accomplishing goals and exceeding them and just being an all around delight to be around. She is wise beyond her years and I'm so excited that I have the opportunity to share some of her wisdom with you through our conversations. Check out this episodes show notes for links to Austin Habitat's Instagram and website that she manages.
Austin Habitat for Humanity (AHFH) is a non-profit corporation dedicated to ending the cycle of poverty housing in the Austin area. AHFH believes everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live. AHFH was incorporated in 1985 and is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International: a global, non-profit housing corporation founded in 1976. The Austin affiliate covers Travis, Bastrop, Blanco, Caldwell and Hays counties. As the Director of Corporate Sponsorships, I research and cultivate new corporate and faith partnerships with companies and churches throughout our service area in those 5 counties. I collaborate with my team on strategy in which to show the true impact corporations can have as being part of our volunteer force that builds affordable homes. In constant contact with our communication, engagement, and construction teams, we work together on how we can maximize the donor's dollars, while ensuring a fun and worthy experience for our volunteers. I assist in planning our annual fundraiser, Blueprints and Blue Jeans, and also attend numerous small community events helping to promote the brand of Habitat for Humanity. I also serve as the liaison for the organization between Habitat Young Professionals and Austin Habitat and help coordinate and manage their events and membership.
