The Committee will consist of the Corporate President/CEO, Board Chair, the immediate past President of the Board, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. In the event the Board Chair is absent, the Vice Chair may act as the Chair.

Family Selection

This committee monitors the homebuyer recruitment process and reviews applications from eligible families to become part of the Habitat program based on three criteria: housing need, ability to pay, and willingness to partner.

Family Support

This committee creates programs, activities and policies that support Habitat families.


This committee focuses on increasing donations and sales of home improvement and related new and used items in order to increase ReStore sales and hence support for Habitat’s building program and also decrease the number of items placed in landfills. This committee reaches out to constituencies that donate to the ReStore via trade groups and professional associations and encourages the creation of formal partnerships. The committee oversees initiatives to increase donations and sales from individuals. It also provides financial oversight.

Veterans Committee (forming)

To help provide volunteer, housing, and employment opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members, and their families. Email Volunteering@RochesterHabitat.org if you are interested in reviving this committee with us!

Youth Committee

This committee raises awareness and educates area youth, both within Habitat homeowner families and in schools and church youth groups, about the mission of Flower City Habitat for Humanity.
