National Women Build

There are Many Ways to Get Involved with Greater Nashua Habitat!

Corporate + Team Build Days

GNHFH Team Build Days are opportunities for groups to have an enriched team-building experience while volunteering on a Habitat construction site. Your group will enjoy an exclusive guided day of service that includes lunch, t-shirts, photo & press opportunities, invitations to our house dedication ceremony and much more. Please read our 2019 Build Day Partnership Package to start planning your Team Build Day or contact louise.smith@nashabitat.org.

Building Crew

Team members interface with designers, suppliers, engineers, city planners, subcontractors and individuals/organizations who play a role in the build. The team obtains permits; prepares construction schedules and materials lists; manages procurement of materials; interfaces with municipalities and regulatory officials; and oversees the work of subcontractors and volunteers. This committee is also responsible for evaluating safety processes on the Habitat build sites, as well as any work that could present potential lead paint issues, or other similar issues. When necessary, this committee also tackles any safety issues that arise in warehouse and ReStore efforts. Who makes a good Building Committee member? Anyone with experience or knowledge of site development or building homes – surveyors, architects, building supply people, or carpenters.

Join Board of Directors or Habitat Committee

There is quite a bit of work that takes place behind the scenes to make a Habitat home possible. Our Board of Directors and committee volunteers provide invaluable support in the areas of family selection, fundraising, land/site acquisition and more. If you have a skill set that fits one of these teams, please contact volunteers@nashabitat.org. Board of Directors Our all-volunteer Board of Directors represents a variety of experience and talent. We always look for Board members to provide governance and direction. The Board meets monthly and some Board members are involved in sub-committees that may meet regularly as well. Family Selection Committee This committee manages the selection process of the families we partner with. It evaluates applicant families based on their need for adequate shelter, ability to pay, and willingness to partner with Habitat. In addition to evaluating the standard credit and financial information required of all home buyers, the team also conducts visits to the homes of applicant families.

Land Acquisition + Site Selection Committee

This team identifies potential sites for construction and checks with city offices for availability of utility hook-ups, deed holders and other logistical concerns. You’ll work with our Building Committee to make certain lots are buildable at no or low cost.

Fundraising Committee

This team raises funds and community awareness of Habitat’s mission. The committee develops fundraising ideas and coordinates special events and campaigns. You’ll also coordinate corporate sponsorships, donor relations, recognition, and research and write grants. You’ll build relationships with people who are passionate about affordable housing, and have the means to further our mission.

Faith Relations

This team encourages support and involvement from the faith community. Ideally, this committee is made up of members of our faith partner organizations. This team coordinates prayer and fundraising efforts, and maintains relations with existing faith partners and potential partners. Click image about to learn more.

GNHFH is getting ready for our Next Build located in Nashua, NH called the Roger Hall Memorial Build – A Home for 2 Veteran Families. Though Covid-19 has halted progress of this new build for the past few months we are in the process of creating new safety procedures and policies to keep all volunteers and our Core Build Crew safe at all times. More detailed information will be posted here in the near future. We hope you will join us on this exciting new build for Veteran Families in honor of Core Build Crew Member, Roger Hall.
