QUUF partners with Habitat for Humanity to help build affordable housing in east Jefferson county. This position acts as the liaison between QUUF and Habitat for Humanity and is part of the Social and Environmental Justice council..
Habitat for Humanity is an organization which is actively building affordable housing. Recipients participate in building their own and other's houses in order to build up "sweat equity." It is very rewarding to work alongside housing recipients, volunteers from other faith communities, and the HFH staff. QUUF has many people who enjoy working with other members and friends during special QUUF and/or interfaith builds. These builds also bring us closer as a community and help us to build connections with people from other faith communities. This job is not a time-consuming one, but can make a big difference by connecting QUUF members with other people working for affordable housing.
Communication, interpersonal skills.
I have held this position for many years and will be available to help the volunteer learn this job. Other members of the Interfaith Relations Council, who are liaisons in their own churches, are also sources of information and support. Other QUUF members who are active HFH volunteers are also a source of support.
