A volunteer board of directors made up of individuals from our community direct and govern the work of this affiliate. Staff, committees, and volunteers perform the work necessary to make this vision a reality. Money, materials, labor, and donations of every type are raised in our community. No government funds are used for the building of Habitat houses, though they can be used to purchase land or build infrastructure. Therefore, we rely heavily upon the generosity and goodness of the businesses and people of this community to support the work done here.
