Background, Qualifications & Contribution to Children’s H.E.L.P.’s Community Housing Revitalization Program

The James family and the Henderson family first met around 1991 when the Jameses moved to  San Juan Capistrano. The two families attended the same church, and their children attended the same school. A few years later, Dick and Dr. Tim worked together on a school board.  So, when it came time to organize and launch Children’s H.E.L.P., Dick was one of the original board members, serving a 1 year term.  When Children’s H.E.L.P. changed its area of concern and developed its Affordable Housing and Community Home Revitalization Program, Dick volunteered once again. He was of great assistance because Dick has been engaged in the real estate industry for over 35 years – the first 15 years in land development and commercial construction, and the most recent 20+ years as an appraiser, investor, agent and broker. He has extensive experience in all aspects of the industry. Most recently, Henderson has been actively engaged in the purchase, fix-and-flip business – he has re-sold at least 12 properties – and he also owns 25 other single-family residential rental properties across the southern United States.

Dick has not held an official capacity with Children’s H.E.L.P. since 2000, but he remains a good friend and like-minded comrade who volunteers his knowledge and expert counsel on an as-needed basis.
