Steve Hoffman, a Licensed Residential Home Builder with more than 30 years of experience, joined the Habitat Spartanburg team in September 2017.
Steve first became familiar with Habitat for Humanity while in Florida when he volunteered with his church group and helped with ReStore pickups.
"I fell in love with Habitat then," Steve said. "When I moved here to be closer to my family, I had the construction background and my sister saw the ad for a Construction Supervisor and I took a chance. I haven't been disappointed. I've enjoyed working with the volunteers and the team here. It's very rewarding."
It's the job of Steve and Construction Supervisors Larry Porter and Terry Weaver to oversee Habitat home construction, supervise and lead volunteers and to maintain a safe atmosphere.
Steve first started his career in construction in 1984 as a laborer after serving in the Marine Corps. as an Aviation Radar Repair Technician, which included time in Japan. Steve has lived in many parts of the United States including Arizona, California, Ohio, and the Bahamas.
"Another part of my job that I really enjoy is working with homeowners - I've never really had a chance to do that before," he said. "To see the sense of accomplishment when they're working on their home is amazing."
