Volunteers at 1045 Webster

Volunteers at 1045 Webster. Two of the volunteers are from Alaska. They were bicycling from Washington and called to see if we had a build coming up and volunteered.

Being a Habitat Volunteer is fun and exciting.  Here are the ways you can help make a change in the lives of a deserving family in Coos County.

We have a “Learn to Build a House” program.  Every other Saturday we have house building projects.  These projects take an inexperienced person from the foundation to the final carpentry stages.  Please visit our calendar at the home web site for our next build location and date.

Committees, each with a specific purpose, carry out much of Habitat for Humanities work.  Many of the committees meet once a month for about an hour. If you see a committee you might want to join, please do not hesitate to call the office at 541-756-9080.

The  Construction Committee is involved with planning and purchasing of all phases of construction.  Skilled labor is always in demand:  framers, electricians, plumbers, drywall installers and finish carpenters are a few trades that we can always use help in the construction process.  Of course, anyone who is willing to work and can follow directions is welcome to join our Construction Committee.

The Family Selection Committee formulates specific, non-biased guidelines in selecting families to partner with Habitat.  They help with the family selection process by reviewing the applications and make recommendation to the Board of Directors for the families who will receive a Habitat house.  You can also help with home visits in this important process.

Resource Development is responsible for fund raising and public relations.  We need a qualified volunteer who would enjoy working on our web site and developing marketing ideas.  Call the office at 541-756-9080 if you are interested.

The Volunteer Committee works to recruit and train new volunteers to help our mission.

The Board of Directors over sees the entire operation, formulates future procedures, ensures that we are following our mission and goals.  We currently meet at the first floor conference room at Baycrest Village, 3959 Sheridan Avenue in North Bend.

To get involved just call our office at 541-756-9080, or email gro.tatibahyabsoocnull@ofni, or fill out our on-line volunteer form and we’ll get in touch with you!
