Congratulations Nancy Nelson!
Congratulations to our very own Nancy Nelson for being named her district’s Solano County “Woman of the Year” by Senator Bill Dodd! Nancy has spent countless hours designing houses for Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity, and for 10 years has been on our organization’s board of directors.
“Her leadership and devotion to creating simple, decent and affordable housing has been invaluable. We are truly blessed to have someone of Nancy’s caliber working to help those in need,” said Dodd.
Nelson is a project manager with OAG Architects Inc. in Benicia, and has designed the last seven houses built by Habitat for Humanity.
“Working alongside the Habitat staff and volunteers reassures my belief in the goodness of people. The journey through life is not always easy, and I think we are at our best when we help each other out along the way. It is hard to describe all the feelings that come from helping a struggling family achieve home ownership, but I can tell you that it gives my life meaning, and brings me joy.,” said Nelson.
Thank you Nancy for your committed leadership, compassion, and dedication to our community – we are incredibly grateful for you!
