Volunteer Spotlight: Christy Jacobi

By | Volunteer | No Comments

Habitat Donor & Volunteer for 20 years
Three words she uses to describe her experience with us: Authentic, Fun, Educational

At Habitat, we often find our most dedicated supporters are those who not only contribute financially but also roll up their sleeves on the build site. Christy embodies this spirit wholeheartedly. Her journey with Habitat began in 2005 when she and her husband, Jim, made their first donation with a commitment to invest locally and help families build generational wealth through homeownership.

As Christy’s involvement deepened, so did her passion for making a tangible impact. In 2021, she began volunteering, often bringing along her children Andy, Sara, and Ryan. For Christy, volunteering was about immersing herself in the Habitat experience, meeting future Habitat homeowners and learning about the education and sweat equity homeowners commit to in the program.

Christy has built memories with each of her children on the build site. On a hot summer day, she and her son Andy worked side by side with Rod, a family friend and Habitat Tiger, feeling both tired and inspired by the end of it. When she was on site with Sara, they installed siding alongside Erica, a 2023 Habitat Homeowner, who shared her enthusiasm for owning a home where her children had more space to learn, play and grow. Recently, Ryan volunteered with her, and they had the opportunity to chat with Habitat staff to learn even more about the impact of their family’s continued support. For Christy, it’s about instilling in her children the importance of community, philanthropy, and investing your time in a cause you care about.

We are so grateful for Christy’s commitment to walk alongside Habitat families as they achieve their dream of homeownership. There are many ways you can get involved in Habitat’s work. Learn more here!
