Meet Jay Huffstatler

NOAHH is excited to welcome Jay Huffstatler as our new Chief Advancement Officer (CAO).

Jay’s first experience with Habitat for Humanity was a remarkable one: volunteering with the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project on the Gulf Coast in 2008. He had a chance to meet with President Carter and hear him speak about what inspired him to be part of Habitat.

Before joining New Orleans Habitat, Jay worked across the Gulf Coast with the American Red Cross, Tulane Law School, and other organizations serving the community.

“Habitat has a history of making a positive difference in communities. I’m excited to have the opportunity to be part of that change,” he said. “Working here, you get to see what goes into making homeownership possible. It’s rewarding to see the hard work of our partner families and the sweat equity they put into their homes. Building homes alongside them, as well as donors and volunteers, is a unique experience you don’t see anywhere else.”
