  • Karla Macelli

    Habitat For Humanity

    Having spent her entire career taking care of people who work for themselves, it’s no wonder that Karla’s path has led her to Livingston County Habitat for Humanity. She brings the resources of our community together to help those in need of decent and affordable housing within our own county and builds side-by-side with those partner homeowners.

    Karla became a Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador to meet people in their own “habitat”. Believing that people are most comfortable in their own surroundings, she enjoys the stories that people openly share that help build personal relationships. “Our community thrives on these relationships. It’s the backbone of our strength,” says Karla.

    Karla earned her volunteer management certification through Habitat for Humanity International, received a grantsmanship certificate through The Grantsmanship Center, completed Leadership Livingston in 2015, volunteers at local community events, and is a member of the Livingston County Choirs business development team.

    With her office inside the Habitat ReStore on Grand River in Brighton, Karla happily gives tours of the ReStore and how it has kept millions of pounds of materials out of landfills through reuse, repurposing and recycling.
