Dorchester Habitat for Humanity is pleased to welcome Erin Roach to its team as the new Resource Development and Marketing Director.
Roach, a seasoned marketing and development professional, has over 20 years of experience guiding communications and engagement strategy for nonprofit organizations and high-growth companies. Over the course of her career, she has led profitable fundraising events and deployed impactful marketing campaigns for organizations both local and throughout the United States
Most recently, Roach served as the Director of Development for the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, a local nonprofit that served first responders, individuals and communities during crises. She was responsible for all of the fundraising for the organization, including establishing one of the largest fishing tournaments in the state of South Carolina.
“I want to thank Jaye and the board for this opportunity with Dorchester Habitat for Humanity,” said Roach. “The mission of putting God’s love into action is one that I truly believe, and I look forward to being able to continue to grow the mission in the Dorchester County community.”
Roach’s background lends itself to Dorchester Habitat’s work in the community as it strives to provide attainable housing for local low-income families.
“We are excited to welcome Erin to our Dorchester Habitat for Humanity family. Erin is especially gifted and talented in developing and growing relationships and partnerships,” said Dorchester Habitat’s President and CEO Jaye Jones Elliott. “The passion and energy that Erin brings to our mission are invaluable as our team and community work together to provide our neighbors with the opportunity to build and own decent, affordable homes.”
Dorchester Habitat was founded in 1993 and has since completed 74 homes in Dorchester County. It takes roughly 2,000 volunteer hours and nearly $166,000 to complete each home. Dorchester Habitat keeps construction costs at a minimum by utilizing mostly volunteer labor and by using all proceeds from its ReStore to purchase materials and land.
