Join a Committee
Each committee works in different areas and comes together to make Habitat for Humanity of Rockland County successful!
The Fundraising Committee creates revenue for HFHR through running fundraising events and cultivating donors. As a non-profit, HFHR’s success depends on the fundraising committee.
Members help spread the word of Habitat for Humanity’s mission and educate communities about the programs we offer.

The construction committee is made up of people skilled in the areas of carpentry, plumbing, electricity, and architecture.
Habitat for Humanity volunteers are often unskilled in construction, needing safety education, and a lot of guidance. Anyone can help, regardless of experience or knowledge. Leading volunteers is a is a very fulfilling use of any skilled laborer’s spare time.
The Family Selection Committee works with families in our community in need of safe, affordable housing.

Members help educate families about Habitat's Homeownership Program and assess the family's need for shelter, the ability to pay, and their willingness to partner with HFHR.

The Community Outreach Committee helps get the word out to the community, about our presence in Rockland and how HFHR can help build a stronger Rockland County.
Members are present at community events and help support all of the committees by making the public aware of fundraisers, services, and ongoing projects. This committee is the face of Habitat for Humanity of Rockland, creating a strong presence and relationship with the community. Committee members use creativity as a way to increase public interest.
