The mission to build homes for Rochester's families in need has a new leader, as Flower City Habitat introduced its new CEO on Tuesday.

Matt Flanigan was appointed the new executive director for the housing ministry. Previously with the American Cancer Society, Flanigan has more than 20 years of experience in non-profit leadership roles.

Flanigan said by moving more people into affordable housing, it'll strengthen city neighborhoods.

"We want to get better at what we do. We want to drive efficiencies. We want do more with the donated dollar of course and build more houses for less to get more people in them. It's not an efficiency like in a for-profit environment that drives to the bottom line of a share holder, but really this about to serve more people with the resources we have," Flanigan said.

Flanigan replaces Dr. Arthur Woodward, who retired back in August after 19 years as CEO.
