Local control rests with an elected board of directors representing a wide range of backgrounds and occupations. Board members serve without pay and chair various committees necessary to Habitat's operation: family selection, family partners, site selection, construction, public awareness and fund raising. There are no paid staff or offices. 93% of our income goes to build houses. Administrative costs for supplies and postage are held to a minimum.


Board meetings are held on the 1st Monday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at the Resale Store located at 130 Bountyland Road, Seneca. Visitors are always welcome!
