Like all affiliates, we seek to build
homes as well as lives.  This helps
families through home ownership to
break the cycle of poverty and
improve communities.  Habitat's
ministry is based on the belief that to
follow Christ's example we must
show caring and love by our actions,
not just our words.  Diverse groups
of people work together with a
common goal, setting aside
differences in the act of caring.
  • Be a Volunteer
  • Work on a Committee
  • Help Prepare Meals
  • Provide Financial Support
Joins families and communities in need together with
volunteers and resources to build decent affordable
housing.  Habitat is a people-to-people partnership
committed to the development and uplifting of families
and communities, not just the construction of houses.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization.  
Homeowners make affordable no interest mortgage
payments over a fixed period, typically twenty years.

All partner families contribute "sweat equity" as they
work as partners with the affiliate and other volunteers
to accomplish Habitat's mission both locally and

2015 Partner Family
“Chuck” and Rachelle Nash with children,
Desirea, Jordan and Nate Daniel
Brown County Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce our new partner
family for the 2015 build. Nathaniel “Chuck” and Rachelle Nash with children,
Desirea, Jordan and Nate Daniel will be the recipients of the fourth home in the
Pleasant Hills subdivision on Brocks Lane.

Chuck and Rachelle are childhood sweethearts from their days at Brown
County High School. Chuck is self-employed in construction while Rachelle
works at Windrose Health Network in Trafalgar. The family is active at the
Church of the Lakes in the Sweetwater area. They are friends with the
Hobson's who were recipients of the 2010 home build in the same subdivision.
The Nash’s learned of Habitat from their friendship.

Chuck and Rachelle are eager to realize the long awaited dream of home
ownership. They greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with Habitat on the
building of their new home.  Brown County Habitat for Humanity welcomes the
Nash Family as our next Partner Family and wishes them all the best as our
construction begins this summer.

Linda Ault Potter is accustomed to working hard,
and has juggled many types of jobs in her
lifetime. In fact, you might say that all of those
jobs were just preparation for the invaluable work
she does for Brown County Habitat for Humanity.  

Born in Seymour and raised in Crothersville, she
helped her parents in their small grocery store
from the time she was seven until her junior year
in high school. She was involved in the local
Christian church and met other students from
across Jackson County, including her husband,
at church sponsored events. She graduated from
Crothersville High School in 1961, at which time
she retired from playing the drums after years of
attending Band Day at the Indiana State Fair.
Linda Ault Potter
She and her first husband had three boys, Greg, who works forToyota and
lives in Princeton, Indiana, David, who has his own construction business in
Florida near Clearwater, and Kevin, who is part-owner and manager of Hotel
Nashville right here in town. But before the boys were grown and successful,
she set the example for them when her marriage ended and she was alone
with the three small boys to raise.

Unhappy with their school bus driver, she applied for the job in the early 70’s
and drove a bus for Brown County Schools for a dozen years. During this
same time period she also worked at the front desk of the Brown County Inn.
Other side jobs have included cleaning houses and the Bond-Mitchell Funeral

On Mother’s Day of 2009 Linda lost her husband of 25 years, Don Potter.
They had a home in Nineveh, but when he retired they moved onto his family
farmland near Kentland, Indiana which was home base for their many travels.
Upon Don’s passing, she returned to Brown County. She volunteers at
Mother's Cupboard and the Nashville Christian Church, where she cooks and
helps with the newsletter. Carrel Moore, past president of Brown County
Habitat for Humanity, asked Linda to help out four years ago, and since then
she has been the coordinator of scheduling for the volunteer work crews on
the home builds, as well as coordinating all lunches that are served to
volunteers during their workdays. She attends all construction committee
meetings and works as liaison between the committee and the various
companies and organizations that help put up homes.

This year, Linda and Sherry Houze served as honorary Grand Marshals for
the Spring Blossom Parade on May 2nd with the theme Neighbors Helping
Neighbors. Sherry represented Mother’s Cupboard in her chef’s attire,
while Linda appeared in Habitat T-shirt and hard hat. Together, the two
groups are preparing to build Project Helping Hands, where the headquarters
for both organizations will be housed.

It is fitting to honor Linda as Habitat Volunteer of the Year 2015 for her efforts
to make our community a better place to live because she has been a good  
neighbor to so many in Brown County for so long. Thanks, Linda! Habitat
salutes you!
