Tom Stemnock is a Civil Engineer and Land Use Planner with over 40 years of experience in the development of residential, commercial and industrial properties in the City of Los Angeles. He is the owner of Planning Associates, Inc., a professional consulting firm which provides environmental, land use planning and development entitlement services to clients for projects in Los Angeles. He has a B.S. in Civil Engineering and M.S. in Land Use Planning.
He joined the Board to assist Habitat for Humanity in evaluating potential project sites and in obtaining the necessary permits to build new homes for Habitat clients.
He joined in order to help working families who cannot afford to purchase their own home. He is especially proud of our Enriched Neighborhood Model where we also train our families to become self-sufficient and escape the continuing cycle of poverty housing by becoming more aware of the day to day; skills necessary to sustain home ownership and the value of education.
He looks forward to our new veteran housing program, Habitat for Heroes, a program to help veterans returning to our community to obtain decent affordable housing.
“There is no better feeling than handing a deserving family the keys to their new home!”
