Name and current title
Holly Carson-Pardue, Homeowner Services Director
Years at Habitat
Almost 4 years!
What brought you to Habitat?
THE MISSION. I’ve been working in nonprofits in Palm Beach County since I was 18 years old and Habitat is by far the most critical mission I have ever had the pleasure to be part of. My first job was working at a 24 hr shelter for abused and neglected children and that’s when I decided I wanted to empower families to become independent and provide a better life for their children. I am a native of Palm Beach County and I am addicted to serving families and seeing them thrive.
What makes you stay?
Seeing our families become successful in building wealth for their families.
What does HOME mean to you?
EVERYTHING. A place my family and I can be safe and secure, and especially, proud of. A place my children are happy to come home to. I want every family in this county to have that same security.
Favorite or most memorable moment during your tenure at Habitat?
When a family of 4 young boys walked through their new Habitat home and saw their new rooms with big smiles on their faces. My kids were there to witness it and it made a significant impact on them.
A fun fact about you?
I am a twin and I have twins. I hit the lottery when I found out I was having a boy and a girl. My family is everything to me.
