Habitat for Humanity of Central Arkansas is honored to have Helena native JayO Howe serving as a board member and as the leader of our Habitat Young Professionals. His hard work has helped grow ReStore & After, Habitat's signature fundraising event, to record breaking levels and it shows no signs of slowing down. We were thrilled that Inviting Arkansas chose to feature JayO in the September issue as he continues to prepare for the big event! Check it out below:
From the article:
“I have two signs in my office. One says ‘Be Optimistic,’ a view I should probably put to practice more often. The other says, ‘What good shall I do this day?’”
In his pursuit of answering that daily call, Jay O. Howe serves on the Habitat for Humanity of Central Arkansas Board of Directors and the governance committee. The local chapter of the international nonprofit organization, established in 1976, brings its global vision – to “put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope” – to Arkansas, transforming the lives of families and neighborhoods throughout the Capital City. Habitat builds homes and sells them to qualified homeowners – offering zero percent interest along with training and resources for the homeowners in an effort to restore + revitalize communities. This chapter, established in 1989, continues to uphold its unwavering commitment to the organization’s mission fulfillment work that generates measurable results – to date, it has completed 160+ building and rehabilitation projects in Arkansas.
