Jonathan Reckford has been the CEO of Habitat for Humanity since 2005. Before that, he served as an executive at Circuit City and the Walt Disney Company, as well as an executive pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Minnesota. Under his leadership, Habitat for Humanity has grown from serving 25,000 families per year to serving over 300,000. Today, he will discuss worldwide housing issues amid this generational health and economic crisis.
Jonathan Reckford believes affordable housing has often been a forgotten social need that the COVID-19 crisis has made even more urgent. Without space, internet, food delivery, and the ability to socially distance and shelter in place, many low-income families find it almost impossible to stay safe. Reckford believes it is time for a national commitment to solve this problem.
