Joseph T. “Joe” Crawford has been chosen the new President of Habitat for Humanity in Charles County. The Board of Directors unanimously elected him to the position, at their June meeting.

His leadership comes during a building project in White Plains, one of over 200,000 homes that Habitat for Humanity International has built across the world. Before becoming President, Joe Crawford served as Vice President of Administration, overseeing public relations and resource development.

Crawford succeeds Robert W. “Bob” Harry, whos dynamic leadership, over the past three years, steered the affiliate through a transitional time. Bob felt confident in handing over the reins, knowing that a positive Board and competent staff could faithfully continue the mission to eliminate substandard housing in Charles County.  He remains in an advisory role as Past President.

Beyond Habitat, Crawford’s community involvement has included United Way, Kiwanis Club, Charles County Tech Council, VICS program, American Red Cross, Christmas In April, Shade Tree Foundation, Project Mercy, Christian Businessman's Committee, the Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Read Around The World, and other various humanitarian or church related volunteer efforts. Some know him best for his contributions toward local government and politics.  Now a business consultant, Joe and his wife, Vicki, and son, J. T., live in Waldorf.

Habitat for Humanity in Charles County is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry. Habitat welcomes all people—regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or any other difference—to build simple, decent, affordable houses with those who lack adequate shelter.
