Chairperson: Mary Meseck
The mission of the Family Nuture Committee is to act as a support group for those families that are selected to receive a Habitat home.
After a partner-family is selected and approved, they are assigned a “nurture person” to guide them into home-ownership. The Family Nurture Committee works with the partner-families, helping them to find “Sweat Equity” opportunities, select the colors for the outside and inside of their home and shop for fixtures and floor-coverings.
The committee conducts mandatory homeowner education classes for new partner-families. The goals of these workshops are to educate our families about budgeting, predatory lending, finances associated with home ownership, home maintenance and how to be a good neighbor. Overall, we endeavor to help our families become successful home owners and members of our community.
