A graduate of California State University Chico, Denise-Marie has many years of executive level employment, including Assistant Executive Director at ARC Stanislaus, CEO of the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director of CICV, an organization in Modesto that helps people with transitional housing, permanent supportive housing and neighborhood stabilization. In addition, she has recently served as Executive Director of Emeritus Senior Living and Prestige Senior Living, dealing with the issues of senior living and community care.
Denise-Marie brings her talents and skills to Habitat Calaveras to bring more community presence and help Habitat develop, implement and maintain activities designed to increase our membership and further our mission of providing affordable housing in Calaveras County.

Calaveras Community Foundation
and Habitat
Join Forces to Help Senior Homeowners

In 2015, the Calaveras Community Foundation, through its Aging in Place Seniors Initiative, awarded Habitat for Humanity Calaveras a grant for $10,000, to aid senior homeowners with critical home repairs. Over the last two years fundis were used for the costs of materials and professional subcontractors.

According to Habitat for Humanity Calaveras Executive Director Denise-Marie Gibbs, “Many seniors do not have the financial resources or the physical ability to tackle home repairs.  Habitat provided oversight for each project and provided volunteer labor where possible.  It’s a win-win for the community.”

A Few Words About Us:  Home ownership is the goal of most people living in America. Contrary to popular belief, Habitat Homes are NOT free! Homebuyers must provide 400 hours of 'sweat equity' and carry a mortgage.

Habitat homebuyers become homeowners and stakeholders in the community. Habitat is a ‘Hand Up’ NOT a ‘Hand Out’. Homebuyers can finally live in their own home, while donors and volunteers are rewarded with the knowledge that their contribution to the local community is helping others live the wonderful lifestyle that Calaveras County offers to all. Communities become stronger with hard working homeowners building a new life full of promise and hope.
