Farmville Area Habitat For Humanity Needs You!

When individual volunteers, businesses, faith-based organizations and other groups come together and work as one, we can build faster, greener, more efficiently. And eventually all our neighbors can live in houses they truly want to call home. Farmville Area Habitat always needs volunteers who are willing to assist us in our mission of providing affordable housing to those in need. There are many ways to volunteer your time to the work of Farmville Area Habitat – and each is important to the success of our organization. If you’re not really the hammer and nails type, consider working in the Farmville Habitat ReStore or joining one of our volunteer committees.  We could also use assistance with administrative tasks in our office, such as helping with mailings, database updates and other organizational support.

Opportunities to Serve:  Various Habitat for Humanity Committees

SITE SELECTION/ CONSTRUCTION COMMITTEE

People who are interested in identifying potential sites for construction or who have an interest or knowledge of home construction. This includes working with local government officials on acquiring land and lots for building, water and sewer hookups and to be sure there are lots that are "buildable" for a house that is suitable for a partner family. Those who like to dabble in real estate would be natural members. 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! Others are welcome too!

FAMILY SELECTION/ SUPPORT COMMITTEE

This committee is made up of people willing to interview and work with families who have made an application to be a partner family with Habitat as well as work with the partner families that have been chosen. These people will also check to make certain that the applicant families meet the criteria established by Habitat for home ownership and that current partner families know what is required for sweat equity. These sponsor/advocate/friends may also help the families in the areas of budgeting and home maintenance.
