Greater New Haven Habitat for Humanity

Join a Committee

Event Planning & Fundraising Committee

Without funding from individual donors, corporations, businesses, foundations, congregations and civic organizations, Habitat wouldn’t be able to partner with low-income families and build houses. The Development Committee is a key component in raising necessary funds and overall awareness about Habitat’s mission. Working closely with the Development Director, this committee plans and carries out special events, creates public relations materials and presentations, communicates with the media outlets, and develops fundraising plans for the organization.

Planning, Building & Real Estate Acquisition Committee

This Committee plans and oversees construction projects and creates the annual construction schedule, as well as solicits donations of building supplies and skilled labor. A sub-committee, Site Selection, identifies existing properties and empty lots that may be potential sites for future Habitat homes, researches the prospective properties, and pursues the acquisition. Members meet monthly at the Habitat office.
