After twenty years of service, Vicki Goldsmith plans to retire at the end of the year.

Yarmouth Port, May 17, 2019 – Outreach and the formal executive search process for Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod’s (Habitat) next Executive Director will commence in early June of this year, according to a recent announcement by Board President, Nancy Smith. The organization’s current staff leader, Victoria Goldsmith plans to retire on or about December 31, 2019 – after twenty years of service as Executive Director.

At the time Goldsmith was hired, Habitat was raising the walls on its 18th home, its first in the Town of Falmouth, and was planning for its 19th home – its first in the Town of Orleans. Currently, with a tremendous level of community support and engagement, Habitat is scheduled to reach a milestone of 150 homes by the end of the year. Contributions and volunteerism allow the organization to provide the opportunity of affordable home ownership to 8-12 local families each year and to sell each home at an affordable price, to a qualified household that also contributes 250 – 500 hours of sweat equity during construction before becoming a mortgage payer.
