Habitat for Humanity International names Donald Mosley to Board of Directors
AMERICUS, Ga., Feb. 19, 2003 — Donald Mosley, an original founding member of Habitat for Humanity International’s Board of Directors, was chosen to become part of the 31-member board, which oversees the organization’s mission of building simple, decent housing in partnership with people in need throughout the world. Since Habitat for Humanity’s founding, Mosley has worked as a volunteer at house construction sites and spoken on behalf of the organization.
Mosley earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas and The University of Texas at Austin. Mosley’s humanitarian efforts have lead him to found Jubilee Partners, a Christian community in Northeast Georgia that has hosted nearly 3,000 refugees from around the world. Jubilee Partners is an offshoot of Koinonia Partners, a Christian community where the idea of Habitat for Humanity was born. He also has led delegations around the world in setting up relief programs for refugees from wars and other disasters. His other humanitarian efforts include being one of the first Peace Corps volunteers in the early 1960s.
Today, on behalf of Jubilee Partners, Mosley spends most of his time on speaking trips, writing newsletters and articles, overseeing the organization’s correspondence and helping to host more than 2,000 visitors per year.
Members of the HFHI board receive no compensation for their voluntary service. Board members typically serve two terms with three years in each term period.
