Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity is always eager to welcome active, caring people to take part in our various committees as chairpeople, secretaries, or standing members!
Our Active Committees include:
Members review all applications, review credit reports, conduct home visits to consider substandard housing need, and recommend partner families to the Board of Directors. They meet as needed and conduct the quarterly information meetings.
Informational meetings at the Habitat Office, 610 E. Omaha St. Please check the calendar or call for next meeting.
Chairpersons: Ronda Carlson
Members provide support to families as they progress through the Habitat partner family process. A family support member answers the family’s questions and encourages them throughout their time in the program, as well as monitors their progress with sweat equity hours and classroom participation. The relationship continues through the first year of home ownership and hopefully beyond. We are currently seeking members with social work or teaching experience.
Meets the fourth Tuesday of the month @ 4:30 PM at Habitat office.
Members of this committee discuss construction materials, practices and safety. We are currently seeking volunteers with experience in safety procedures as well as architectural and design experience.
Meets the first Wednesday of every month @ noon at the Habitat office
Chairperson: Clint Jolley
