Non Construction Opportunities

 

Beyond the Site

Are you looking for a way to help in a non-construction type of activity and have a few hours to spare? Volunteers are needed in the following areas.  Contact our office at info@chemungcountyhabitat.org or 607-734-1361 for more information about any of these opportunities.

Committees

Join the behind the scenes teams that make Chemung County Habitat run!  We are currently looking for people to serve on the following committees:

Family Selection & Support Committee

This committee is responsible for drafting selection criteria, screening applications, interviewing applicants, and recommending applicants to the Board of Directors for final approval as prospective home buyers.

Fundraising Committee 

Coordinates fundraising events, annual campaigns, donor recognition, outreach, and public relations and marketing.

Office

Assist in the daily operations of Chemung County Habitat by tracking critical volunteer information, filing, doing data entry and helping as needed in a variety of tasks.  We ask office volunteers to commit to volunteer regularly for two to three months.

Photography

Capture the work of our volunteers on the construction site and at special events on camera and help us to showcase the work of Chemung County Habitat.  Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and have their own camera.  Please contact our office for more information.

Provide Lunch

Prepare and bring lunch to our hardworking volunteers on our sites Tuesdays and Saturdays.  Volunteers work up quite an appetite and they would appreciate items such as sandwiches, chips, fruit, cookies and other site-friendly food to get them fueled and ready for the afternoon.  Purchase and prepare it at home or buy something pre-made.  Lunches should be delivered by 11:30 a.m.  Please be prepared to bring at least 10-15 lunches.

Site Hosts

Welcome volunteers to the construction site.  Site hosts create a welcoming environment for all volunteers and make sure that their paperwork is turned in and filed properly.  Site hosts are needed between 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays and must be at least 16 years old.

Youth

Young people ages 5 to 25 can take action to fight substandard housing! Find out more about our Youth Programs by calling our office at 607-734-1361.
