The Senior Crew is a group of individuals who give their time to Habitat on a regularly scheduled basis. While the majority of the members are retired, we have plenty of members who are not but simply have the time and heart to volunteer on a regular basis. 

Members receive priority scheduling, extensive communication and specialized training.  Perks include free Senior Crew clothing, name tags, social activities and more! For more information on joining Senior Crew, contact Jodi Isom at (920) 967-8882 or via email at Jodii@FoxCitiesHabitat.org
