Construction is well underway. Habitat volunteers along with volunteers from the GGHBA, GSCC Carpentry Class and Job Corps have kept the project moving along well.
Who We Are
Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization, that has been building simple, decent and affordable homes in Gadsden, AL, since 1996. Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity partners with volunteers and low income families to build affordable housing. The houses are sold to these families at no profit and with no interest.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, while individuals and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund for Humanity to purchase building materials for the construction of more houses.
Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit, Christian housing ministry, is seeking a Construction Manager to coordinate and direct all building activities, including materials procurement, subcontractors and site supervision. Must have strong technical and leadership skills, working knowledge of house construction, and management skills to work with both skilled and unskilled volunteers. Job is both challenging and rewarding because of partnership opportunities with Habitat families, volunteers, and the local community. Salary is negotiable based on experience; may be on contract basis per house.
