This is a hands on committee with a goal to help families break the poverty cycle and become independent. We work with partner families to help them become successful homeowners. As a group, our committee meets once a month. You will receive full training on how we work with our partner families from the start of the partnership until the day they pay off their mortgage. Individually, the time commitment when working with a partner family varies, but typically requires 10 to 12 hours per month during the construction phase of the home and then just a few hours a month for meetings and keeping updated with the family progress. If you'd like more information on how this committee operates, one of our Family Support committee members would be happy to talk with you.
About Snyder-Union-northumberland Habitat for Humanity
PO Box 64, Selinsgrove, PA 17870, US
SUNHFHbring's God's people together to build homes, communitites, and hope in Snyder, Union, and Northumberland Counties.
Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity builds home in partnership with people who are currently living in substandard housing and can not afford a traditional mortgage. Each approved partner works hand-in-hand with our community volunteers to build their own homes. They are required to attend a budgeting program and submit a $300 down payment. Once the home is complete the family will be given a no-interest rate mortgage for the amount that it cost to build the home. Those payments are then used to build more homes. We currently build one or two homes per year and have two part-time employees. Almost all of the administrative and construction duties are completed by volunteers, providing many different opportunities to the community at large.
