As Habitat grows from serving 20 to 30 families every year, the number of volunteers on our construction sites is predicted to increase by 50%. A grant from Bank of America will help to enhance volunteer communications and enhance overall volunteer satisfaction as Habitat grows from providing 6,000 to 9,000 annual build site experiences.

This award will directly support a new, computerized, construction volunteer check-in system. Bank of America funds will purchase laptops for use at build sites, underwrite one-time setup costs to synchronize imported volunteer data with our existing database and share the cost for an AmeriCorps Member helping to expand volunteer services.

The first laptops are already being beta tested at the Victoria Cottages build site in Gresham. Once the remote login process is refined, this system will rollout to all Portland/Metro East build sites in spring of 2012.

Habitat's Victoria Cottages build site is testing a digital check-in system that will hopefully branch out to all sites in spring of 2012.
