The Family Support Committee is responsible for recruiting and training persons to become “Family Advocates.” An “Advocate” serves as a liaison between the Partner Family and Habitat Staff. The goal of the committee is to facilitate all aspects for a smooth transition with the partner family as they move toward home ownership, including ongoing communication and/or the development of programs that support/enhance home ownership. these Advocates help our families with such things as “sweat equity” requirements, home maintenance, and finances.

The Family Selection Committee works to carry out the Board’s vision by defining the population in need of decent, affordable housing, and by developing processes and policies for selection of those in greatest need.

It oversees the preparation of monthly financial reports and reviews those reports to monitor the affiliate’s financial health.  The committee arranges for an annual independent audit of the financial records.
