Community Spotlight: Door County Habitat for Humanity's Lori Allen If you ask Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Lori Allen what the favorite part of her job is, it is working with the partner families that bring the biggest smile to her face. Since coming aboard at the end of 2019, Allen helped set up the first Northern Door home build in several years and two more just down the street from each other in Sturgeon Bay. The two homes in Sturgeon Bay also mark the beginning of Habitat’s new relationship with the Door County Housing Partnership. Working together will allow the organizations to address the county’s affordable housing shortage over time. Behind the scenes, she has even worked with families on the cusp of being able to benefit from their programs, but need a little more time to get into a better position.  Allen says forming those kinds of relationships with current and future partner families is important.
