The steering committee promotes communication and coordination among each project area. It oversees the project and insures that the house sponsorship experience is a value to your organization.
Ultimately, the sponsor determines what areas are necessary for success of the project. At the least, someone should be charged with financial dealings between the sponsor and FCHH. If you plan to send volunteers to help with building your house, a Volunteer Coordinator is highly recomended.
Members are responsible for encouraging group/company participation in the project through fundraising, volunteering, participation in key-ceremonies, etc. The steering committee maintains the relationship between the sponsor group and Habitat staff.
