Be a part of making a real difference in someone's life! This committee seeks applicant families, reviews the applications, interviews potential partner families, and recommends the families who need our services the most to the Board. There are different capacities in which you can serve, if you are more comfortable working behind the scene to make sure families are within guidelines or if you would like to meet with our potential partner families first hand you can be the one to go out and do the interviews. Averages 20 to 40 hours commitment per year depending on how many homes we need to fill.
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.
