Giving Back To Build A Path To Housing For Those In Need

Dr. Ruth Liu and Dr. Chung Liu
Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga
Dr. Ruth Liu and Dr. Chung Liu

Dr. Ruth Liu moved to Chattanooga from Chicago in 1976 - after her husband Chung completed his residency.

Together, they opened his OBGYN practice.

Ruth taught for years at Southern Adventist University - and then she went back to school, earning a doctorate in higher education leadership and policy studies at the University of the Tennessee.

Early on, she learned the value of giving back - which brings us to a property here in Chattanooga that Ruth and her husband have owned on Shallowford Road for many years.

The Lius are longtime supporters of the Community Foundation, where Ruth is a board member - and where Caroline von Kessler is vice president of philanthropy.

I spoke with Ruth, Caroline - and Jens Christensen is president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga.
