President (Allison Dooley):

  • Welcome to TSU Habitat for Humanity!

    • Habitat for Humanity is an international non-profit Christian-based org.

    • Goal: to eliminate substandard housing and homelessness worldwide

    • A hand-UP, not a hand-OUT

    • The Truman chapter does most of its work searching and building for a family in the Kirksville area

    • We also work with the Genesis House in Edina, MO

      • And old house that needs renovation

      • To become a safe haven for new mothers who don’t have a safe or stable environment to raise their children

    • Lots of fund-raisers

      • Benefit concert with the TrueMen, for example

    • We work to raise awareness about substandard housing and homelessness in the US and Kirksville

        • We sleep on the quad in a shack for a week!

    • We take a Spring Break trip

      • Usually to the Gulf Coast

      • We’re thinking about taking a Midterm Break trip to Joplin or Independence

Vice President (Kaitlin Duckworth):

  • VP’s biggest job is to plan our trips

  • Mid-term break trip this year?

    • Independence, Missouri

      • Close to Kaitlin’s house

    • Joplin, Missouri

      • Doing 7 houses in 7 days (not sure if it lines up with Mid-term break)

      • We would need to find somewhere to stay STAT

Secretary (Clara Dahmer):

  • The secretary e-mails everyone every time there is a general meeting or an opportunity to work with fund-raising, building, etc

  • Also posts the minutes on-line so if you miss one you can check them out (
