Celebrating “Fox Hollow”

June 19, 2015 | Leave a reply

Together with our volunteers, donors, friends, partners and families, Habitat dedicated “Fox Hollow” at Burden and Cross to our new homeowners and celebrated another milestone in the revitalization of a neighborhood. Fox Hollow is the largest building endeavor that Habitat for Humanity has ever pursued in the City of Troy and was built in loving memory of Seymour Fox, whose estate donated much of the property for this project. The rain held off long enough for us to proudly dedicate this thirteen-home development and share our joy in knowing that thirteen more hardworking families now have a safe, affordable home of their own. Mike Jacobson kicked off the morning by introducing incoming Executive Director Christine Schudde. Mayor Lou Rosamilia, County Executive Kathy Jimino and CEO YouthBuild Program Manager Angela Balogun also shared remarks and congratulations. Board member Brian Barker gave a beautiful blessing of “Fox Hollow” and our thirteen new homeowners. Check out the rest of our dedication photos over at our Facebook page. Thank you to photographer Josh Crystal for volunteering your services!   The dedication was covered by several local news outlets: Time Warner Cable News News 10 Channel 13 Troy Record Thanks to our project partners including the City […]

Despite the fact “it’s really cold here”, these past five years in the Capital District have been among the most memorable of my life. With the dedication of our “Fox Hollow” project in South Troy and the beginning of our ReHabitat program in the North Central neighborhood, to our first six closings in Albany’s Sheridan Hollow and having ground ready to break for Phase Two, now seemed like the right time to pass the baton and bring my Habitat experience to an end. I’m truly blessed to have been surrounded by a great board and a staff of our area’s best and brightest. It is my sincere pleasure to announce that Christine Schudde, our Director of Development, has accepted the challenge and will become Habitat’s Executive Director. Christine also became “hooked on Habitat” as a result of her volunteer experiences in 2002 and joined our Board of Directors in 2003. Christine became a […]
