The Resource Development Committee (RDC) oversees the task of raising funds for the affiliate’s build efforts. It ensures that staff, volunteers and board members are committed to the fundraising process. Along with the Executive Director, the committee synchs the program objectives with the teams’ ability to raise funds. Several fundraising events and programs are used. The teams research and apply for government and private grants. Committee members pursue corporate sponsorships for builds and fundraising events. Team members also schedule, publicize and run the annual appeal and special campaigns. And by number, most volunteers in this area work on a variety of fundraising events, the largest of which is our annual auction. All of these RDC teams and sub-committees are energized by new participants. If you are interested in joining any of these efforts, please call the office at (908) 835-1300 and ask for a meeting with the RDC chair.

Public Relations Committee (PR) manages the public view of Habitat. It uses all available media to broaden and sharpen awareness of Habitat’s mission, its goals, its needs, its partnerships, and its successes. It accomplishes this by creating messaging plans for public relations materials and campaigns. Team members provide the content required by the messaging plan and ensure it is distributed as widely as possible. The team considers and explores the use of all available media outlets including print, radio, TV, traditional mail, email, internet, and social media. If you are interested in joining any of these activities, please call the office at (908) 835-1300 and ask for a meeting with the PR chair.

Volunteer Committee. Volunteers are the life blood of Warren County Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers do everything from construction to data entry to warehousing, and our mission cannot be fulfilled without the steady stream of knowledgeable, dedicated individuals working toward the common goal. Team members coordinate volunteer efforts and keep the enterprise going through their training, retention, recruitment, and appreciation activities. If you are interested in joining any of these activities, please call the office at (908) 835-1300 and ask for a meeting with the Volunteer Committee chair.
