Building communities where everyone has a decent place to live

Committees

It's informative to view Habitat for Humanity Menominee River (HFHMR), not as a monolithic organization that moves as one, but as a collection of interrelated committees that help move the affiliate towards our goal of eliminating poverty housing and improving communities. Each committee is an independent body of volunteers that works within defined areas of responsibility. Together we are HFHMR.

This independence allows volunteers the freedom to find the area where they most want to contribute. A retired contractor may best share his or her skills in the construction committee. A volunteer with a sales and marketing background may want to help with our ReSotre or Fundraising committee. Finding the right place for your skills is our first priority.

Whether you're an individual, small group, a large business, or other caring organization, there are many ways to become involved in HFHMR's work. Volunteers can join any number of committtes. To volunteer for these committees or to become a member of our team, stop by our offices at 113 S. Milwaukee Ave, or contact us at hfh@habitatmr.com or (906) 779-5377.

Construction/Core Crew Committee As you might expect, this committee oversees every facet of our home construction and rehab efforts. Their responsibilities range from selecting home sites, to approving blueprints, to overseeing construction budgets. This important committee swings the hammers and keeps our affiliate focused on our most visible characteristic. To volunteer, email the office at hfh@habitatmr.com.
Family Selection/Family Support Committee Our primary mission is to offer eligible families an opportunity to buy a simple, decent home. This committee's responsibility is to find, screen, and support families that fit HFHMR's definition of "eligible". This committee must find familiies that are willing to partner with us, are able to shoulder the financial responsibility of a mortgage, and have a real and obvious need for a new home. It's not an easy task. This committte screens more that fifty applicants for every family that's approved. To volunteer, email the office at hfh@habitatmr.com.
Fundraising/Volunteer Committee This is the "queen bee"; committee. Everything HFHMR does starts and ends with fundraising. Everyone on our team gets involved with this committee in one way or another. Whether you help with our grant writing team, participate in the planning of our "Taste of Hope"; fundrasier, or help run our golf outing, there is a place for you. To volunteer, email the office at hfh@habitatmr.com.
ReStore Committee Our Restore is unlike any other commercial business. We are a non-profit entity, but are tasked with making a "profit". We walk a tight line between our two primary missions: (1) provide affordable goods to our customers and (2) raise money for the affiliate. Our ReStore manager is quick to complement the members of this committee with inventory control ideas, budget oversite, pricing limits, store layout, and other facets of the organization. To help with this committee, contact our ReStore director, Vicky Kuehl, at restore@habitatmr.com.
