Gail Basine, who has been at the helm of Family Services for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton since 2008, retired in December 2015.
During her tenure, Gail developed and maintained the Habitat for Humanity partner family recruitment process. She marketed, coordinated, implemented, and managed small group and public speaking orientations to educate homeowner candidates about Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton programs. She also managed homeowner selection process as a liaison to the Family Selection Committee, coordinated and participated with partner family home visits, and acted as the community liaison. Over the course of her time at Habitat, Gail served over 67 families who actually moved into their new homes.
Habitat for Humanity, which started in 1976, has had a Dayton affiliate since 1983.
Prior to working at Habitat, Gail worked with Ombudsman Office for four years as their Volunteer Coordinator, serving nine counties. She also worked as a low income Housing Manager for Grace Works Senior citizen living quarters.
Gail’s position will be taken over by Dave Mauch, who was previously Habitat’s Volunteer Services Coordinator. “It is exciting to be promoted to the position of Family Services Director. I know that I have big shoes to fill taking over for Gail because of the tremendous work she has done over the past 8 years,” says Mauch. “I am looking forward to the challenge and hope to continue the great work of helping families achieve their dream of homeownership by partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton.”
We would like to thank Gail for her years for service at Habitat for Humanity and dedication to the partner families.
