Meet Our Team

Karl Church

Construction Manager and Site Supervisor


Karl church has worked as a carpenter for three decades. He comes to Wayne County Habitat for Humanity after retiring from teaching carpentry and working at Flower City Habitat for Humanity in Rochester. Karl enjoys working with volunteers and teaching new skills to build decent, affordable housing. You can reach him at kchurch@habitatwayne.org.

When not on site, he enjoys sailing with his wife, Maureen, and snowboarding in the winter.
 

JJ Cotter

Executive Director


JJ is passionate about affordable housing. She was hired at Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County at the beginning of 2019 as the first ever employee at our previously all-volunteer-run organization. Her role is to support the organization in its day-to-day endeavors, carrying out the operations to help create an efficient, successful, sustainable organization. You can reach her at jcotter@habitwayne.org.

When not at work, you can find JJ exploring the great outdoors, possibly up in Maine ticking off the last 200 miles she has left of the Appalachian Trail. You can also find her with her dogs, or spending time with her family (in no particular order).
