Communities 

You can make a difference in the life of a family in Nodaway County by getting involved with a committee or volunteering on the construction site. Habitat for Humanity’s labor force is primarily volunteers. No matter what your skill level or interest, there’s always a way to get involved and give back to our community.

Family Selection Committee 

Members of this committee work on the selection of the Habitat partner family. They review the applications, make home visits and ultimately recommend a partner family to the Board of Directors. It is an excellent opportunity to work with families in need as they achieve their goal of home ownership.

Site Selection Committee 

Before a home can be constructed, Habitat must secure a building location. The Site Selection Committee identifies, evaluates and recommends building site locations throughout Nodaway County as the Board matches a partner family with a building site that is appropriate for their needs.

Public Relations Committee 

This committee coordinates the publicity components of Habitat of Nodaway County, including publicizing the family selection process, coordinating various fundraising initiatives to ensure sufficient funds are available to underwrite the Habitat home and generally spreading the word about Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County. Fundraising, media relations, announcement coordination and information sharing are all part of the responsibilities of this group.

Volunteer Coordinator 

Everything Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County does culminates with the construction of new Habitat homes. There are many integral components in the process, but none more important than securing volunteers the labor that changes a pile of materials on a truck into a home for our partner family. Our volunteer coordinators work with the construction team and community members to arrange for groups and individuals to participate on any given build day. From contacting businesses, club, organizations and churches, these individuals ensure volunteers are on site when we're ready to build.
