Nicholas Kouloheras, executive vice president, Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, knew that behind all its beauty, the area seriously lacked decent, affordable housing, something he works hard to change every day. Under his direction, Habitat of Collier has been recognized by Habitat International as the Affiliate of the Year two years in a row and was recently named the number one community and housing development charity in the United States by Charity Navigator. The Massachusetts native, whose family tree includes many educators and administrators, also devotes time to the Collier County School District. He became involved in the Osceola Elementary School PTA when his older daughter began kindergarten, and in 2011 he became its president. In what spare time he has left, Kouloheras trains for triathlons. He finished an Iron Man Triathlon in 2012, and plans to tackle another in November.
|“I plan to keep steadfast in my commitment to Habitat for Humanity, working with as many families as possible to provide the vast opportunities that come with owning a safe, decent, and affordable home.”|
