“The new office in Columbus localizes Thermal Belt Habitat operations. Thermal Belt Habitat merged with Henderson County Habitat in 2017 and we want to insure Thermal Belt Habitat will continue to have its own identity as a local service in the Polk County, Landrum area,” said Ron Laughter, President and CEO of Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity. The new office is highly visible and easy to find. People can drop in to pick up information about Habitat programs. Current and potential home owners and volunteers from the Thermal Belt area can schedule appointments to conveniently meet with staff there.”
