Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Dwayne Spencer, President & CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis, who highlights some of the history and 40 years of impact in the Mid-South for the nonprofit organization helping local families build or improve places they can call home through affordable home mortgages, rehabilitation projects and renovations to help seniors live in the homes longer. As part of the 40th anniversary, Memphis Habitat’s 600th local homebuyer will be served in 2023.
During the interview, Dwayne discusses their Habitat homebuying program and how affordable home mortgages are realized with zero percent interest. He talks about Habitat’s Aging in Place program, which provides older home owners with accessibility modifications, safety interventions, and critical structural repairs – improvements they cannot make themselves – along with how the program works and why it is so needed. Dwayne also touches on the ReStore, the power of volunteerism and how the community can support their efforts.
