Committees, Events and Office Suppport
When people hear Habitat for Humanity, they immediately think of house construction. While this is the main work of Habitat, there are lots of other opportunities to get involved!
HFHGCC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who is greatly supported by volunteer-led committees. Each committee represents a critical part of the HFHGCC program.
- Much behind-the-scenes planning must occur before any construction project can begin. The Building Committee is responsible for the planning, implementing and monitoring of each of our construction projects.
- Partner families must go through a rigorous screening process before they are selected. The Family Services Committee reviews every application to ensure partner families will succeed in homeownership. Once a partner family is selected and approved by the Board of Directors, the Family Services Committee appoints a liaison to work with the family during the construction of their home. The liaison will monitor sweat equity hours, make sure the family is attending required training sessions and be available to answer questions that may come up.
- In order for a house to be built, we must have the funds to build it! The Fundraising and Community Development Committee works on securing the necessary resources, both volunteer and monetary, to build a house. This committee works to support our major fundraising events, HouseWalk and the Bricks & Sticks Golf Classic.
- The Site Selection Committee is always on the look-out for affordable, buildable land for our next project.
HFHGCC benefits from various community events throughout the year, and we are always looking for dedicated folks to represent HFHGCC! Volunteer fairs, alternative giving events, and public speaking opportunities, HFHGCC needs volunteers to help spread the word about our affordable housing program and mission!
And last but not least, the HFHGCC Administrative Office engages volunteers to support day-to-day operations. Filing, data entry, greeting guests, and assisting with mailings are just a few examples of how you could support our work.
