The organization provides a great service to the community and families. But it also allows volunteers to learn new skills, be outside, and be part of a positive, supportive team.

I have spent the last 14 years building homes for families who would probably not be able to afford a home any other way. I help manage a large group of weekly volunteers, both organizationally and onsite. I also am responsible for the entire building process once or twice a year as a House Leader.
It was only a sidelight for me until I attended the first home dedication for a family I had come to know through the process of building their home. Seeing their joy when they receive the keys to their new home was all it took to make me a "lifer."

The Great!

DAHfH is establishing a code of conduct to be signed by the volunteer, to encourage volunteers to be more "professional" and accountable, i.e. They pledge demands a high degree of professionalism both in regards "social" behaviors pertinent to the volunteer, NFP environment, as well as task specific execcution, i.e., job related skills. I would implement this ASAP.
