The Bryan-College Station Habitat for Humanity board of directors serves, guides and leads our staff on our mission to eliminate substandard housing in our community. Our board members represent a variety of professional fields, including real estate, accounting, education, banking, marketing and so many others. Most importantly, these volunteers have chosen to use their experience to build homes, communities and hope for our neighbors.

Thank you for your service!
