Welcome: Learning the “Why”

Welcome: Learning the “Why”

To be successful in any job, meaning and purpose are crucial. When we work toward a mission greater than ourselves, we become greater at achieving our mission. Kentucky Housing Corporation’s mission is to invest in quality housing solutions for families and communities across Kentucky, and we achieve our mission through a broad and valuable network of partners. The meaning and purpose of that mission really comes to life when you assign faces and names to it. When a homeless person finds the shelter he needs during a cold night; when a single mother earns a college degree, gains self-sufficiency, and becomes a contributor to society and pays taxes because of services received in a Scholar House program; when a former addict hugs his children after arriving home from a new job because of the support he received in a Recovery Kentucky program to achieve and  maintain sobriety; when a young newly married couple goes into their local community bank and become homeowners through KHC’s down payment assistance program; we have achieved our mission. Meaning in our work leads to better collaboration when self-motivation gives way to team motivation toward a common cause.
