Snyder-Union-Northumberland Habitat for Humanity
On this committee you would be working with Realtors, checking on-line sites, and watching for private land owner opportunities to find sites within our three county area that are suitable to build a Habitat home. You would be viewing home and/or land conditions/costs and serving as liaison between owner and Habitat. The Site Supervisor will also be working with you to identify viable properties. Once a potential property had been identify it is brought to the board for approval. No meetings are held, a 20 to 40 hours commitment per year, our desire is to secure at least two sites that we can build new homes or that can be rehabilitated per year.
About Snyder-Union-Northumberland Habitat for Humanity
PO Box 64, Selinsgrove, PA 17870, US
SUNHFH bring's God's people together to build homes, communitites, and hope in Snyder, Union, and Northumberland Counties.
Snyder-Union-Northumberland 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.
