Opportunities to Speak

We love the opportunity to share the wonderful stories of transformation that occur at Housatonic Habitat.  Sam Dobrotka, our Executive Director, is an ordained minister and welcomes the opportunity to speak to church groups: small groups, outreach groups, or the whole congregation via the Sunday sermon. 

We also appreciate opportunities to talk to school, business, or other community groups.

Please contact us if you would like someone to come and speak to your group – large or small.
