“George was a true partner in our three month case study of a Habitat for Humanity program. He helped our department to clarify the depth and range of our needs, adding in context and creative thinking from his past experience with Habitat for Humanity affiliates. And his execution was sensitive to the nuances of the program and the perspectives of many different program participants, leaders, and partners. In the end, he successfully synthesized the mountain of case study information in a way that revealed subtleties of the program and gave us guidance for future development of our own work.”
