  • Construction Committee

    Work with our Construction Director to carry out everything needed for new home builds, rehabilitation, and repairs. Consider this an occasion to meet new people while strengthening your community by building safe, affordable housing. You’ll have the ability to improve people's lives, work alongside future Habitat homeowners, learn different skills, and share your skill. In fact, there are numerous benefits when it comes to volunteering. You don't need any experience. Bring your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors, the more, the merrier!

  • Engagement Committee

    Make Habitat's mission possible! We need your help raising funds through ideas development, event planning and building relationships within our community.  Implement unique ideas that support our mission and raise funds for all we need to keep the doors open and build communities.

  • Faith Relations Committee

    This committee establishes and maintains strong relationships with local congregations, enlists their support for projects and promotes Fauquier Habitat for Humanity’s mission. Activities include leading discussions of Habitat’s goals and activities and coordinating the participation of individual congregations.

  • Finance Committee

    This committee oversees the finance and day-to-day function of the affiliate office. The Executive Director reports to the Board and to the Finance and Administration Committee. The members of the Finance and Administration Committee are responsible for the financial well-being of the organization. This committee is made up of Board Members.

  • Real Estate & Development Committee

    The Real Estate Committee is responsible for locating, evaluating, and recommending property purchases. It works in close cooperation with the CEO & Building Committee to ensure property suitability before acquisition. Experience with land acquisition is helpful.

  • ReStore Steering Committee 

    The Restore Steering Committee’s mission is to provide a supporting role to the ReStore Director. Proceeds from the ReStore support the building projects of Fauquier Habitat for Humanity.

  • Women Build

    Women Build works to recruit, empower and train women to build simple, decent and affordable homes. Women Build worksites provides a unique opportunity to learn construction skills and to build leadership and teamwork skills. If you are not interested in building, that’s okay! We have many other needs that can be filled. Fauquier Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build invites you to make friends and memories that will last a lifetime while making a lasting change in our community.
