The number of houses we can construct is not limited by money,
sites, or qualified applications. It is the availability of willing volunteers.
Construction of a house requires about 1200 direct man-hours,
but that represents only a fraction of our needs. The Resale store is open 21 hours a week requiring a staff of 12. Volunteers can serve on the board of directors, on the family selection, family partners and
construction committees; or assist with grant writing, public awareness, church relations, finance and accounting, volunteer
coordination, and on and on.......
If you have particular skills in the building trades, that is
great, but even if you are more likely to hammer a thumb than a nail, we can use your help! If you could spare a few hours
a week, give us a call. Few activities give greater satisfaction than seeing a family, who never thought it could afford to, move into
its own new home.
