Janice Jensen helps make the dream of homeownership
a reality for thousands of Bay Area residents.
By JULIE VALLONE Portrait by CHRIS AYERS
DURING THE 1990S, Janice Jensen would spend many a Saturday with a hammer,
nails and other tools helping to construct new family homes for Orange
County’s low-income residents, along with other volunteers from her local
Habitat for Humanity group. Little did she know that, about a decade later,
she’d go on to lead another Habitat affiliate as president and CEO, eventually
serving more than 8,000 people throughout the East Bay and Silicon Valley.
