At Home with Habitat Lincoln
Every April we participate in a branding campaign, Home is the Key, to spotlight Habitat's work across the country and in our community.
Traditionally we post photos and stories of the need for affordable housing and the impact you have but this year we decided to try something new. Our development director, Christina, had a crazy idea to host a podcast mini-series to delve deeper into the Habitat Lincoln and our boss told her to go for it!
Have we done this before? No. Are we perfect at it? No. Did we have fun? Yes! Are we excited to share it with you? Yes!
“At home with Habitat Lincoln" is our four-part mini-series, where you'll hear from Habitat homeowners, ReStore team, our CEO, and more. We hope you enjoy being "at home" with us!
We also want to thank Arrive Coworking for the inspiration to do the podcast and the utilization of their podcast studio. Arrive Coworking and Community is a coworking space in Lincoln whose mission is to support female entrepreneurs in their community by offering affordable work space, networking events, and educational opportunities. Thank you for sponsoring our podcast adventure!
