Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna Gets New Executive Director

Karen Blandford will lead the nonprofit as of Dec. 10.

The Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna will have a new leader next month.

Karen Blandford, formerly a consultant for Maryland Asset Building and Community Development Network, assumes the role of executive director at the Bel Air-based Habitat nonprofit Dec. 10.

Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna provides housing opportunities for income-qualified individuals in Cecil and Harford counties. Since its founding in 1993, it has repaired 150 homes and built 69, according to an organization announcement.

“Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna is a strong organization, with an excellent staff and board. The work they do in the community is important, and makes a difference for the families they help, and the communities they serve," Blandford said in a prepared statement. "I am proud to be joining their team of staff and volunteers.”

Blandford will be in attendance at Habitat Susquehanna's second annual Community Builders' Celebration from 5:30–7:30 p.m. on Jan. 16 at Mountain Christian Church (1824 Mountain Rd.) in Joppa.
