Committee volunteers are an important part of Habitat
These are the people who work behind the scenes so that we can build
affordable housing. All you need is a belief in our mission and a
willingness to serve.
This committee develops and plans new events and unique ways to do
fundraising in the community. We are seeking people with skills or
interests in event/party planning, creative types, and yes, some people who
don’t mind asking for monetary support for an important cause. General
“worker bees” needed as well.
This committee is responsible for identifying families in need who qualify
for Habitat homes, assisting applicants in preparing applications, reviewing
and evaluating applications, and providing timely follow-up to interested
families. Committee sponsors are assigned to work closely with families
to help them develop the skills needed for responsible homeownership and
provide advice and moral support in the family’s struggle out of debt and into
fiscal responsibility. The sponsor assists the family in contacting
social service organizations if and when needed and provides confidential
counseling and assistance to deal with family crises and situations that
threaten the family’s ability to be a successful homeowner.
Communications is the key to success for any organization. The
PR team is responsible for media relations, the Habitat newsletter,
speaking engagements, and public outreach events. The committee also
helps plan special activities such as groundbreakings and special
Members of this committee coordinate the construction of our homes from
start to finish, including planning, permits, infrastructure, and supervision
of all construction performed by professionals and Habitat volunteers.
The committee oversees volunteer training and worksite safety and first
aid. We are in need of skilled and unskilled volunteers.
Faith in Action
This committee serves as the liaison to the faith community. Committee
members provide congregations with educational materials and encouragement for
them to provide opportunities for members to bear active witness to their
faith. Responsibilities include planning activities for the annual Faith
Week and Day of Prayer, making presentations to churches, and encouraging
congregations to embrace the Habitat mission as their own and pursue an active
partnership with Habitat.
We are always looking for property where we can build or renovate
homes. This committee identifies affordable property for purchase and
seeks landowners who are willing to donate property to Habitat.
The Dinner Auction Committee plans and oversees the annual Habitat Dinner
and Auction event and strives to increase the net goal. This is Habitat’s
largest fundraising event and it takes many dedicated volunteers to make it all
happen. Whether you volunteer the night of the big event or throughout the year
helping us get unique items and sponsorships, we're certain we can find a
volunteer job for everyone!
