Fund Raising Committee
The Fund Raising Committee is responsible for implementing fund-raising policies and goals set by the Board of Directors. It is the responsibility of this committee to create and implement fund raising events and approach donors for either cash or "in-kind" gifts of material, labor, property, or support.
The Public Relations Committee takes responsibility for creating favorable public notices of the activities and purposes of the Corporation. The responsibilities would include advertising fund raising events and human interest stories that will result in favorable public perception of the Corporation by using public media, i.e. radio, television, and newspaper advertisements and newsletters, internet websites and event notices, social media and public speaking.
The Site Selection Committee works
Building & Site Selection Committee
The Building & Site Selection Committee first works to define neighborhoods and communities to work with and find available land to build on. This includes working with city offices, neighborhood associations, and property owners. Those who like to dabble in real estate would be natural members. Then the committee proposes guidelines to the Board for the type of construction work that the affiliate will do, dealing specifically with the house design criteria, materials, plans, and cost estimates. This committee also oversees the construction of Habitat homes.
Volunteer Coordinating Committee
Habitat is a volunteer based organization. Because of the large number of eager workers, there is always a need for those willing to coordinate volunteers, make phone calls, correspond, and send thank you notes.
Family Selection & Nurture
The Family Selection & Nurture Committee works to carry out the Board's vision by defining the population in need of decent, affordable housing, and by developing processes and policies for selecting those in greatest need. Once an application has been received, this group will work with families who have applied, making sure that the applicant families meet the established criteria. Habitat affiliates are committed to "the development and uplifting of families and communities, not only the construction of houses." The Family Selection & Nurture Committee shall provide education, support, and guidance to Habitat partner families in matters related to the preparation for and adjustments to becoming responsible home owners. This committee is also responsible for partner family records of hours worked and volunteer hours donated necessary for the completion of “Sweat Equity” requirements.
Nominating & Membership Committee
The Nominating & Membership Committee is responsible for recruiting and recommending outstanding community leaders to the Board of Directors. Once elected, the committee leads educational initiatives to increase the effectivity of Board members.
