Habitat for Humanity has been operating as the Bee County Affiliate of the International Organization since our application for affiliate status was approved in May 2010 by HFHI. We have a board of directors made up of 15 members from our community who manage the operation of the Affiliate at this time. The board also has three committees which help in the operational focus: Site Selection and Site Construction, Family Selection and Family Support, and Resource Development and Church Relations.
We have completed two Brush With Kindness projects and are working toward raising the funds for our first new Build in 2014. We need the community to support us in reaching the goals of our organization. Of course, we will be looking for community groups to help with a build or other Brush with Kindness projects. Of course, we will need to finish the details for a site, for selection of a family and maintaining a strong presence. Of course, we are a long way from completing the fundraising.
But, in spite of these needs, we will move forward to give families in our county a chance for “a hand up” in better living conditions. To this end, we are looking for a few good people to become members of our board. We need people willing to meet for our monthly board meeting, to work on the committees and to assist us in other ways. We need people representative of the diversity of our communities in Bee County. The nominating committee is looking for such individuals to begin a term in July.
If you would be interested, I invite you to contact me.
