Our Volunteer Board

St. Croix Valley Habitat’s board & executive committee are volunteers who come from a variety of backgrounds with the resources, wisdom, and passion to lead in constructive, effective, and meaningful ways.

The St. Croix Valley Habitat board is charged with long-term planning and governance, as well as overseeing the organization’s interests and well-being. Within these broad areas, the board develops policy, sets strategic priorities, governs, oversees finances, and raises funds, among other activities. The standing committees of the board are Executive and Administration, Development, Finance, Family Selection, Family Support, and Faith Relations. Board members take the lead in various committees and in fundraising efforts and in conducting home dedications to recognize and thank sponsors and congratulate new homebuyers.
