York Habitat for Humanity is honored to be able to announce Kathy Yost as our December Volunteer in the Spotlight. Kathy has been volunteering with Habitat for over 8 years. She has helped on our construction sites, sat on the Marketing Committee, and planned and ran in York Habitat's 5K fundraisers. Most recently, Kathy joined our Board of Directors and has agreed to chair Habitat's Finance Committee. Kathy has extensive background in finance as the former CFO of York Water Company. Yost has given our organization many years of financial expertise and advice. “I believe in the mission of Habitat because I think everyone deserves a chance at home ownership. I like that the homeowner has to earn the house through sweat equity and that there is a family partner to help the family succeed. The family also gets an interest-free loan making it affordable," Yost said recently. "I know of no other organization that empowers families like Habitat.” Thank you for your many years of service Kathy. You are a true blessing to YHFH and the York Community.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25
