Amanda Barritt Joins Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors
Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt, P.A., is pleased to announce that stockholder Amanda Barritt has been inducted to the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties, Inc. She has committed to a four-year term during which she will “impart the wisdom and knowledge needed to strengthen (the) mission of building homes, communities and hope,” as acknowledged by Elisha Baird, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Habitat for Humanity. When asked what inspires her about Habitat’s mission, Barritt shares,
“I value rewarding hard work. I love that Habitat provides a means to assist people doing their best, but due to economics, they need help to realize their dream of homeownership. It’s important to me that parents can provide a safe and comfortable home for their children.”
