Homesite donated to Habitat for Humanity in loving memory of Robert C Moody

Catawba Regional Council of Governments (Council) and Catawba Regional Development Corporation (CRDC) announced the donation of a residential property to Habitat for Humanity of York County in memory of Senior Planner, Robert Moody. Mr. Moody was a senior staff member of the Council for 15 years until his death in the summer of 2020. He also previously served as a part-time Construction Coordinator for 5 years and frequent volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of York County.

The homesite, located at 80 Pinckney Street, in York, SC, is part of Catawba Regional’s “Neighborhood Initiative Program” which removed slum and blighted structures from former residential properties. Re-developed parcels are then made available for affordable and workforce housing in the region. Habitat has determined that this property will be the location of the forthcoming Habitat Faith Build in 2022.

Tim Veeck, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of York County, recognized this contribution as a continuation of Robby’s work and heart for people. “The donation of this property honors Robby’s dedication to making decent, affordable ownership housing a reality in our community. His legacy of service with Habitat lives on through the many families that are flourishing due to the strength and stability their home provides, and this property will be yet another opportunity to honor and remember Robby’s faithful, heartfelt passion for this work. In the spirit of service that Robby so humbly and consistently displayed, we welcome individuals or groups to donate or volunteer in support of this build. For more information about Habitat for Humanity of York County or to donate or volunteer, go to or call (803) 328-1728.

Randy Imler, Executive Director of Catawba Regional, celebrated the impact of Moody’s life and the connection to this property. “Robby always envisioned what was possible and what could happen – both in the lives of people with whom he worked and throughout the communities he served. He was a dedicated man of faith and family, a servant leader and friend, and someone who is deeply missed. In this season of Thanksgiving, the Catawba Regional Boards of Directors and our staff are grateful for Robby’s life of significance and service. We are pleased to honor and remember Robby in this way.”
