Looking to sharpen your resume or get more involved in the community? Join a committee! We have a wide variety of committees at Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis that focus on everything from family selection to young professional development and networking. Committees typically meet on weeknights at our Administrative Office located at 3763 Forest Park Avenue, 63108. For more information on committees, read below!
A Family Services member is a compassionate, caring, organized volunteer who can do paperwork, is detail oriented, and is good at information evaluation. This volunteer also must have people skills and enjoy interacting with applicants. Committee members work with the Director of Family Services and the homebuyer families prior to, during, and after the build. Committee members help provide guidance and encouragement to the families so that they fulfill their obligations of becoming successful homebuyers. Committee members continue to work with families after closing to ensure that they adjust to homeownership and are productive, well-rounded community members.
Leading Edge Committee
Leading Edge is responsible for the recruitment, training, retaining and support of Construction Leaders before, during and after the build. It provides continued construction education and social opportunities. The committee meets once a month on the fourth Wednesday at 6:00pm.
Special Events Committee
The Special Events Committee coordinates some of the events in which Habitat Saint Louis participates. This Committee participates in planning, mailings, soliciting gift/aucition donations, decorating and volunteerig during the event. The committee meets once a month on the first Wednesday at 5:30pm.
Women Build provides an opportunity for women to work together to learn new skills and make new friends while building a home with a familiy in need. Visit the Women Build page for more information.
Habitat Young Professionals
Habitat Young Professionals is a group that engages young adults (21-40) in the work of Habitat Saint Louis.

This is a group of people who are looking to get involved in their community, have some fun and make new friends all at the same time!
