Seeking Construction Supervisor

Do You Know the Next Palouse Habitat Partner Family?
Palouse Habitat"s Family Selection committee is organizing the search for our next partner family. The dates for the application window have not been decided, but Family Selection expects the search to start sometime after the new year. Palouse Habitat builds houses in partnership with families that otherwise cannot afford their own home. Partner families help build their home with Palouse Habitat volunteers and then buy it at cost with a 0% interest mortgage held by Palouse Habitat. These monthly mortgage payments help build future Habitat homes. Palouse Habitat maintains a tickler list of people interested in applying for our next home build. Please contact the Habitat office at 208-883-8502 or to answer some basic screening questions to see if you might qualify and to get on the tickler list to be contacted when the application is available. When contacting the office at 208-883-8502 or, please leave your name, phone number(s), mailing address and email address if you have access to email so we can respond to your inquiry.

You can help! Individuals visit Sign Up Genius or Sign Up Genius-Lunches to help build or bring a build day lunch now through the end of December. No experience or tools necessary - just a willing heart and hands! Most build days are Saturdays - other days available on request. For large groups, to be added to an email update list, or more information, email

Urgent!Lunches needed for Habitat build site. We have a steady group of building volunteers, but we need lunches on Saturdays to feed those volunteers on the build site. It can be as simple as peanut butter sandwiches, an apple and a cookie. Some lunch providers are excellent cooks and like to bring soups, stews, homemade pizza, salads & desserts. Others call in an order for a large hoagie or fried chicken to Winco, pick up apples, chips, rolls & cookies to go with it. If cost is an issue, just save your receipt and Habitat can reimburse you. We let you know by Friday afternoon how many to expect. A typical work crew is 8-12 people. Lunch is served at 11:30, but that can be a little flexible if needed (for example, you could drop a cooler off in the morning). We also have volunteers who would be willing to pick up and deliver a prepared lunch. The location is 427 Greensides Place in Moscow. We need lunches almost every Saturday starting this Saturday through the end of the build (in December). Please consider this ministry - it really makes a difference for our hardworking volunteers.

Habitat for Humanity is a hand up, not a hand out! Our partner families must contribute 300-500 hours working on their home (sweat equity), save a $1000 down payment AND purchase the home from Palouse Habitat for Humanity. Palouse HFH sets a zero-interest mortgage based on the cost of materials to build the home. Those payments help build the next home. Why no interest? Exodus 22:25 If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest.
