A contact form can be found at the bottom of this page to inquire about volunteer opportunities for a build or to serve on a committee to assist in planning for the future.
People who are interested in identifying potential sites for construction. This includes working with local government officials on acquiring land and lots for building, water and sewer hookups and working with the construction committee to be sure lots are "buildable" for a house that is suitable for a partner family. Those who like to dabble in real estate would be natural members. Others welcome too!
People who have an interest in and may have knowledge of home construction. This can include surveyors, architects, people who know building codes, carpenters, concrete workers, plumbers, electricians, utility people and building supply people. There is a lot to know about building houses. If you have any knowledge at all, or if you would like some on-the job training, please join us.
This committee is made up of people willing to interview and work with families who have made application to be a partner family with Habitat. These people will also check to make certain that the applicant families meet the criteria established by Habitat for homeownership. Working with the Family Support Committee, you will find certain joy in making what seems an unobtainable dream come true for some of these families.
People who have good "social/people" skills to work with partner families both before and after construction to be sure that the families know what is required in the area of sweat equity, to provide a record of that time requirement, and to help in the transition of true homeownership. These sponsor/advocate/friends may also help the families in the areas of budgeting and home maintenance.
People to identify and approach potential donors (individual, church, corporate) for either cash or "in-kind" gifts of material, labor, property or support. This committee also needs people who can develop fundraising material and help with grant writing. You will be surprised to find how eager people are to give when they understand the principles of Habitat.
People who can write articles for newsletters, and one or two who would like to work with local media are needed for this committee. Persons interested in volunteering to serve on this committee may also speak to church groups and other groups and organizations about our projects and our mission. People on this committee help the affiliate "get the work out."
Volunteer Relations Committee
