Walter Dalton's deputy campaign manager has been named a director at Habitat for Humanity of Durham.
Derwin Debose, who has also held policy jobs with the Lieutenant Governor and State Treasurer's offices, will be director of programs and communications for the non-profit Christian housing ministry.
"Derwin will help Habitat build more homes and connect to all of our neighbors in Durham," said Blake Strayhorn, the group's executive director. "His deep roots in Durham, special connection to affordable housing, and government successes will help us chart a growth strategy for the next 10 years."
Habitat for Humanity of Durham helps nearly 75 families each year achieve home ownership by building new homes, repairing existing homes, and rehabilitating abandoned homes.
Dubose said the group is "doing bold work to revitilize Durham communities" and that he's honored to join the team in helping his neighbors.
