Participate in a Committee
Habitat for Humanity Northern Utah's committees are a great way to contribute and be involved in our community. Each committee meets regularly throughout the year and works with members of the Board of Directors, Habitat employees, and community members. Each committee has a specific focus and purpose.

Family Selection Committee
Committee members work together to select partner families that will become Habitat homeowners. Responsibilities include drafting and updating selection criteria, recruiting applicants, screening applications, interviewing applicants, and recommending applicants to the board of directors for approval.
Family Support Committee
This committee is responsible for providing Habitat homeowners and prospective homeowners with a support system, educational opportunities, and a forum for discussions about homeownership and maintenance, all to help families break the poverty cycle and become independent.
Committee members work alongside board members to raise funds needed to support Habitat for Humanity's mission of "A world where everyone has a decent place to live." This includes coordinating and organizing fund-raising campaigns and events, helping with writing grant proposals, and working toward cultivating major donors.
Members of this committee work as a liaison between our Habitat affiliate and our local faith community by facilitating communication and developing partnerships.
This committee works with the Building Committee to research availability, evaluate suitability, and recommend potential properties to the Board of Directors for acquisition.
Committee members are responsible for planning and implementing construction projects. This may include developing or obtaining house plans, soliciting appropriate professional construction help, creating lists of needed building materials, assisting the resource development committee in getting the items, developing a building schedule, coordinating volunteers, and supervising construction.
