Charlie brought his real estate know-how to Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity around 1990 and continued his volunteer service for another 12 years. His tireless and tenacious approach resulted in considerable donated property and funds, helping grow the homebuilding organization from its infancy to what it is today.
