After five years at the helm, Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director David Van Dyke is looking to build onto a new career. Door County Habitat for Humanity officially began its search for a new executive director last week shortly after the organization dedicated its fifth home under Van Dyke’s watch. In addition to the home builds, Door County Habitat for Humanity saw its Brush with Kindness program expand to over two dozen home repair projects in 2019 and a partnership form with Adopt-A-Soldier to help with veterans. Van Dyke says the position has been transformational for him after previously serving in a leadership role with the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes.
Van Dyke says staying on for five years was always in his plans and hopes to pursue a career in natural resources after a new executive director is found.
