Austin Habitat for Humanity | CEO
Michele Anderson serves as the chief executive officer of Austin Habitat for Humanity, serving Bastrop,
Blanco, Caldwell, Hays and Travis counties. Originally from Virginia, Anderson moved to Austin with her husband to help lead Austin Habitat to new heights and further their mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. As the affordability crisis continues to rise across Central Texas, many cannot purchase a safe, decent home. As a result, families cannot realize the benefits of affordable homeownership, including financial stability, the ability to pay for quality health care, education advancement and a safe community for their families. Anderson believes Austin Habitat plays a crucial role locally and nationally by acting as an innovator and leader in affordable housing. Besides fulfilling the critical work at Austin Habitat, her great joys include quality time with her friends and family, great food, good music, being outdoors and a good laugh.
