Committees : : Outreach & Public Relations Committee

This committee is responsible for sharing Habitat's mission with the people living in the geographic service area, and all volunteers. The goal of the committee is to continually seek to raise and maintain the community's awareness of Habitat's work in ways that properly reflect the mission, beliefs and image of Habitat for Humanity Canada. Sharing the mission includes educating and informing the public of Habitat principles, polices and procedures in an accurate and responsible manner. Effective sharing of the Habitat mission with the entire community will raise public awareness and ultimately activate more people to be involved in some way, shape or form in the reduction and elimination of poverty housing from Huron County. It should also assist in additional leveraging of local resources to address local challenges.
