On Tuesday, August 12th, the Board of Directors of Habitat for Humanity of Tuolumne County unanimously approved the selection of Trinity Abila as Executive Director. Her first day of work was Monday, August 18th.
Margaret McCreary, Board Chair, announced the selection saying “We are delighted with our selection and know that Trinity will bring the talent, energy, and focus that we need. She will be a tremendous asset to our affiliate and our community.”
Trinity brings 17 years of experience in construction, non-profit, and ministry settings including 10 years leading her own construction company. She is experienced in work with HOAs, is a certified ministry coach and licensed minister, and has had extensive experience as a volunteer serving on Conference and Denominational Boards for the Evangelical Covenant Church. She has been honored for her International Humanitarian work in Colombia and India.
Trinity was drawn to our mission of making home ownership a reality for hard working families in our region. When asked about this new opportunity, Trinity remarked “although we make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. Therefore I am elated to be able to give Habitat my best for years to come.”
