Family Support Committee develops a positive partnership with families in the program. Each family has a Family Partner who serves as the family’s liaison with Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity, providing a support system that helps guarantee success. Committee members ensure that selected applicants understand Habitat’s requirements and expectations. Family Partners maintain regular contact with their assigned family to ensure they are progressing through the homeownership process. Family Partners help schedule and record the sweat equity of their partner family. The committee works in partnership with other community organizations to provide training in credit counseling, home maintenance, home repair, energy conservation, etc.
The Family Support Committee meets for one hour each month to review each family’s progress, identify problems, and work together to determine solutions. Each committee meeting is a celebration of the progress made by Habitat families toward their goals. Family Partners spend approximately 2 hours meeting with their assigned family during the month.
