Habitat affiliates are committed to “the development and uplifting of families and communities, not only the construction of houses.” Members of the Family Support Committee will work to establish tools and procedures for accomplishing this task. This committee works with families to be sure that the families know what is required in the area of sweat equity, and to help in the transition to true home-ownership. The Family Support Committee usually establishes and tracks the affiliate’s sweat equity policies, provides classes and other educational opportunities for families, and assists the family in making choices concerning the construction of their home. Many Family Support Committees provide a one on one volunteer to guide a selected family through the Habitat building process.
