Volunteers are needed during the building season to help with construction and/or to provide meals for the workers. Office help is needed on occasion throughout the year. There are openings on the various committees for volunteers who are interested in becoming involved in the internal function of the affiliate. To contact the Volunteer Coordinator, call the SVHFH office at 740-779-9734, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org , or fill out and submit the Volunteer Profile on forms page.
There are many opportunities to support the ministry of Scioto Valley Habitat for Humanity. A donor form is available on the forms page. The following donations are needed and always welcomed:
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!!
We continue to search for properties on which to build. We have families in Pickaway and Ross Counties in need of simple, decent and affordable houses. If anyone has information about property that might be donated or purchased at a reasonable price, please contact the Habitat office.
Donations of building materials such as electrical supplies, plumbing supplies, drywall and lumber can be utilized in the building of our houses.
The donated services of contractors for some of our building activities are needed and appreciated. Legal services such as title searches are another area that can benefit our affiliate by the time and expertise being donated. See our volunteer page for more information.
•Items for our Rummage Sale
Household items and used appliances are always welcome to be sold at our semi-annual rummage sale. We now have a storage facility that enables us to accept these items year-round. Please call our office if you have items to donate. We do not accept clothing.
The cost of building a habitat house is between $65,000 and $70,000. We are only able to build one house for one family out of over 40 applicants per year, with our current budget. With sponsorship we can double that. We have the volunteers who want to work and crew leaders willing to guide and instruct, the only thing missing is the funding necessary to put one more family in a simple, decent house. The Chillicothe Evening Lioness Club sponsored a WomenBuild house in 2005 and the Women Build Hero House in memory of police officer Larry Cox in 2006. Any corporation willing to sponsor or co-sponsor one of our houses should contact our office.
