Habitat for Humanity NCC
about the family support committee The backbone of the relationship between a family and a Habitat affiliate is the Family Support committee. A strong committee helps diminish the cycle of poverty by serving as a resource to families in the process of becoming homeowners. The Family Support committee has a unique responsibility that requires patience, knowledge and wisdom. To be inclusive to prospective homeowners who do not speak English as a first language, we would like to offer support that can accommodate their needs. The committee specifically works with families through: * Sweat equity * Homeownership education * Adjustment to new responsibilities * Continued partnership
qualifications * Good listeners and relationship builders * Sensitive to and experienced with other issues that may result from living with a limited income (such as a lack of education, improper nutrition and health care, debt, relationship strains, low self-esteem, anxiety, frustration). * Ability to be organized and communicate well with families in program and Habitat staff
About Habitat for Humanity NCC
1920 Hutton St, Wilmington, DE 19802, US
To build affordable housing at no-profit through a combination of volunteer labor, 'sweat-equity' and no-interest mortgages. We act in partnership with the community as a diverse group, including individuals, partner families, faith groups, civic organizations, local schools and businesses. We reach out from Christian roots across denominational, faith, economic and racial lines to bring together people who are concerned for their neighbors. We strive to develop and empower individuals and communities through the construction of simple, decent homes.
Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County is a volunteer-driven organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with families in need. By working side-by-side with the family who will live in the house, our volunteers experience the joy of helping a family to realize their dream of homeownership.
Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County offers both volunteer construction opportunities as well as non-construction opportunities: such as providing lunches for construction volunteers, working in the ReStore, or serving on a committee.
