Henry County Habitat for Humanity is operated by the support of volunteer committees. The committees are typically comprised of volunteers that have experience and a background in their various fields with respect to the tasks the committees perform. All of Henry County Habitat for Humanity’s committees work together to support our mission to help more families in Henry County obtain simple, decent and affordable housing. The Board is looking for a person(s) to be a part of these endeavors on a committee (descriptions below) of your choice. If you’re interested in joining our team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lisa Diener, 319-931-0656.
