Deke says that his commitment to Habitat is rooted in his love of the diversity of people and hope that he sees in Newburgh. He says, "We are meeting a critical need. Ours is a very concrete, focused mission. At Habitat we have to negotiate a lot of things, but we never have to negotiate our mission. I look at the capacity that has been built in 15 years, and I think it's extraordinary."

He shares that his favorite Habitat moment ...he was sweeping the basement floor with a young man who turned out to be the son of the future homeowner. Tom remembers the innocence, happiness, and appreciation that the young man expressed when speaking about his family’s future home. This conversation has stayed with Tom, and continues to inspire him in his work with Habitat.
