Tammie Dodge

Tammie Dodge, a Nebraska native, is now the construction project manager at The 712 Initiative.

As part of their partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Council Bluffs on local housing, The 712 Initiative has hired Tammie Dodge as their Construction Project Manager.

Dodge, a native of North Bend, Nebraska, was hired to oversee housing rehabilitations and new builds. This includes scheduling and working with subcontractors, overseeing permits, and overall layout and design of these homes.

“We could not have asked for a more perfect candidate to oversee this next chapter in our organization,” said Sheryl Garst, The 712 Initiative’s CEO, in a press release. “Tammie has been on the ground floor previously building up housing programs to lift up underserved families and neighborhoods. We are so fortunate she has joined our team to build up a team of contractors and make an impact in Council Bluffs.”

Dodge is busy at work on The 712 Initiative’s Housing Revitalization Program. She is overseeing the work on five active project sites with homes slated to hit the market this summer.

“I am thrilled to once again be a part of a grass roots organization that is integrated into the community in so many great ways,” said Dodge. “I’m excited to be able to help build a new program and help to make affordable housing an option for more hardworking families in the area.”
