It takes hundreds of volunteers to make our Habitat affiliate successful. Following is a list of our committees and a short description of what they do. We can use your help! “Read all about it” below, then CONTACT US to let us know how you want to help – or stop by the Habitat Office for a form. 

 

 

 

FUND RAISING: It takes a lot of money for a young affiliate to build enough houses, (mortgage payments from owners also help in financing the building of new homes), so fund raising is an important part of our affiliate. The average cost for a three bedroom house is $65,000. Mortgage payments from Habitat owners help to build additional houses, but it takes about 30 existing houses to pay for one new one.

FAMILY PARTNERSHIP COMMITTEE: Counseling new home owners is especially important, and the relationship is a long term one.

SITE SELECTION: Finding reasonably priced (or even better, donated) lots that are buildable and in affordable areas is an interesting challenge.

PUBLIC RELATIONS: Part of the Development committee, this group is responsible for spreading the word about Habitat, and also for small fund raising activities in conjunction with P.R.

SAFETY COMMITTEE: Safety at the building sites is a very important part of Habitat.

BUILDING COMMITTEE: Coordinating volunteer workers and paid craftsmen.

FAMILY SELECTION: Thorough investigation is done to assure a good match between applicants and Habitat requirements and goals.

OFFICE PARTNERS: These folks (mostly women at present, but more men are welcome!) staff the reception desk. A three hour shift once a month (or more if you want to) helps a bunch!

Just a few hours a month help so very much!
