The steering committe group worked with Habitat for Humanity International and developed a
set of bylaws in keeping with the principles of Habitat for Humanity. The group was recognized
as an official affiliate, Habitat for Humanity of Wausau in July of 1990. As an affiliate we
follow the philosophy and operation guidelines setup by Habitat for Humanity International,
but operate as a separate entity. Each affiliate is registered with their state as a non-profit
organization and completely responsible for funding and building homes in their area. Affiliates
are governed by a local board of directors and operate through working committees.
