For individuals interested in a one-time Habitat project, volunteering occasionally, fulfilling community service requirements or wanting to learn a new skill; Habitat welcomes you to the job site. Don’t have construction experience? Don’t worry, we welcome volunteers of all skill levels to the jobsite. Our patient and knowledgeable crew leaders will train you to perform the task of the day.
Volunteering with Habitat is more than swinging a hammer! We rely on our volunteers in many different ways to accomplish work, strengthen the community and supply more families with affordable housing. Join our team of professionals, family services, one-time event needs or weekly office receptionists.
Building a house together on the job site is a great way to build relationships within your group while helping to address the affordable housing crisis in our community. Bring your team or organization out to build with us and construct a house together. If your group is interested in projects aside from construction, we’ve got those too!
Habitat for Humanity welcomes youth and family volunteers. Although safety and liability concerns limit the construction-related participation of children under the age of 16, there are many ways that entire families can play a role in making Habitat dreams come true.
