People who have an interest in and may have knowledge of house construction. This can include do-it-yourselfers, as well as active or retired surveyors, architects, people who know building codes, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, an others in building trades, and people in the building supply business. If you have any knowledge about building homes OR if you would like some on-the-job-training, please join us.

People willing to interview families and evaluate the applications of those who have made an application to be a partner family with Habitat. Committee members will check to insure the applicant families meet the criteria established by Habitat for home ownership, and recommend families for selection by the Board of Directors. 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 before and after construction to help partner families understand what is required regarding sweat equity and other requirements, to provide a record of that time requirement, and to help in the transition of true home-ownership. These "advocates" may also help the families by providing education in the areas of budgeting and home maintenance. This is a way to truly help people who have inadequate housing.
