2016 Project

Our next build will begin in the fall of 2016. Please check back for more information. At this time, only the partner family and the students from Fairfield High School’s Building Trades program will be working on the actual construction. For more information on volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in other capacities, however, please email us at info@fairfieldhabitat.org, or call (641) 209-9450.

Other Ways You Can Help

The committees below need volunteers. If you are interested in helping, Call 641-209-9450 or email info@fairfieldhabitat.org.

Family Support Committee: Help plan and set up education for partner families (financial, home repair, home ownership and foreclosure education), provide moral support, and work with partner families at the job site.

Newsletter: Help copy, fold and distribute newsletters. Help compile email addresses for e-newsletter.

Volunteer Committee: Help update volunteer data base, and use your charming personality to recruit new volunteers!

We are always looking for experienced carpenters to help us. Houses are built from engineered components, notably structural insulated panels (SIPs), so this is an excellent opportunity for carpenters who are more familiar with traditional stick-frame wall construction to learn about the newer SIPs technology.

Many churches and businesses in Fairfield have sponsored a work day to help build a Habitat home. Many women and youth have also been involved in building homes. Youth need to be 16 to work on a site due to the use of power tools.

Board Meetings

You are also welcome to join us for our regular Board meeting the third Thursday of every month. Board meetings are at Miller Realty Office, 1309 South Main Street in Fairfield at 5:30.
