Committees

 

 


Faith Relations Committee
 

The Faith Relations Committee is comprised of Board members and volunteers who are responsible for finding ways to involve area churches with Fluvanna Habitat for Humanity to work together to fulfill Habitat’s mission of building affordable and decent housing for lower income families in the county.

Although Habitat was founded as a Christian organization, we are open to people of all denominations, races, and cultural backgrounds who believe in the idea of building decent homes for and with needy families as an expression of their faith.

Churches can be involved in a number of ways.  It might be through taking up a special collection, or providing a work party during construction of a house.  It might be sponsoring a fundraiser, with the proceeds donated to Habitat   A church can become a Covenant Church which is an annually renewable written commitment that pledges to pray for Habitat’s ministry and to contribute financially in some way.

Committee members, if requested, will visit local churches to talk about Habitat and discuss what each church can do to help.  Church liaisons are a vital part to making this committee work.  The liaison will share upcoming events with their church congregations. 

You can help by volunteering to be a liaison for your church.  Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are interested.

 

Resource Development Committee

Fluvanna County Habitat for Humanity’s Resource Development Committee is a committee focused on nurturing relationships with donors, businesses and service industries within the county and identifying potential new relationships.  Strengthening the relationships we have with current partners and finding new supporters ensures long-term sustainability for our organization.  This committee also works on our annual Golf Tournament!

 

Family Selection Committee

The Family Selection Committee is made up of Board members and volunteers to review all applications for housing.  Using guidelines from Habitat for Humanity International this committee works together to add homeowners into our program.

The Family Selection Committee reviews each application to determine the needs of the family and their ability to afford a Habitat Home.  This will involve credit checks, on site home visits in their present living quarters, and interviews with potential homeowners.

Once this review process has been completed, the Family Selection Committee makes their recommendation to the Board of Directors and asks for the Board’s approval of a new Habitat family.

Once an agreement has been reached and papers signed by the potential homeowner and the Board President, a member of the Family Selection Committee becomes the family’s “advocate”.  This advocate helps the family through all facets of the building process, from groundbreaking to dedication.  This committee also helps to provide educational classes for the potential homeowners.
