Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity, Inc. (GCHFH) seeks to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, hope, and community. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

The Project Supervisor will support the mission of Habitat for Humanity by providing oversight for construction, renovation, and repair projects on homes for qualified residents of Goodhue County in accordance with guidelines, practices, policies, standards, and codes accepted and supported by GCHFH. The Project Supervisor will report to the Construction Manager. Much of the construction, renovation and repair work is performed by volunteers, and the Project Supervisor must be willing and able to utilize volunteers of varying skill levels to perform selected work properly and safely.

GCHFH’s goal is to construct or renovate at least three homes and provide repairs or improvements to at least twenty-one homes each year. The Project Supervisor will work closely with the Construction Manager, the Community Engagement Coordinator, and other staff to safely organize and oversee work at certain project sites, following established processes, procedures, and practices to ensure the objectives of the GCHFH are met in a safe, timely, enjoyable, and satisfying manner for all involved.
