Building homes. Building hope.
Building Saint Louis.
Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization that was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent place to live. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and work toward that goal with a comprehensive program in which hard-working St. Louis families invest their time into actually building, buying and owning a home. Our volunteers are also an integral part of our program. Each year, around 3,000 volunteers give their time and talent on the build site, in the ReStore, on a committee or in our office. Join our team as we work to ensure every man, woman and child in our community has a decent place to live.</</

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 3830 South Grand. 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. The Family Services Committee meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:00pm at the Habitat Saint Louis Administrative Office. For more information or to join the committee, please contact Avis McHugh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leading Edge Committee
Leading Edge is responsible for the recruitment, training, retention and support of Construction Leaders before, during and after the build. It provides continued construction education and social opportunities. The Leading Edge Committee meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:00pm at the Habitat Saint Louis Administrative Office.
