There is a lot in making a house look even and neat
Meet Nate Eckstrom. Nate is joining our team all the way from Pennsylvania and serving with the #AmeriCorps Mobile Response Team headquartered at Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity. Nate has joined our small but mighty team for a year before pursuing a law degree back home in Pennsylvania. He is learning a lot about affordable housing and that “there is a lot into making a house look even and neat”. Nate joined the team right after we left our disaster deployment in St. Louis so he hasn’t been able to join the disaster team just yet, but we know he is a hard worker and will make a great addition to the team when we are called up for a future natural disaster.
