Volunteer Opportunities with SVFCH

            Even though smaller population based organizations like ours often build more homes per capita they are usually needing volunteers at all times.  They especially need leaders so that they can use the volunteers they have.  An example of this is the need for construction supervisors.  It is not unusual for a small organizations to have a construction supervisor who has been handling the construction for years and would like to do something else but canít find a replacement.  Similar circumstances often occur on the board and committee levels.

            Below is a list of some volunteer opportunities at SVFCH.  
Board of Directors - Family Selection - Partnership - Church Relations - Construction Committee - Construction - Fund Raising - Public Relations - Site Selection - Volunteer Coordinator
