Abstract

For our project we examined the current methods Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester uses to track volunteer hours at build sites and manage project timelines. The group surveyed volunteers and interviewed managers from Habitat for Humanity and other organizations to learn about possible project management and volunteer tracking software. We found Cervis to be the most cost effective program that met all of Habitat’s tracking needs. For project timeline management, the group developed a comprehensive Google Sheets Gantt chart system taking advantage of its simplicity, customization, sustainability, and cost.
