At the construction site

We use a combination of professional and volunteer labor to build Habitat homes. Depending on the stage of construction, we may have opportunities for you to build with us! We welcome volunteers of all skill levels to join us.

Volunteer on a build site

We ask that you commit to arriving on time and working with us for your entire scheduled shift. We're counting on you to help us build. 

Please note that volunteers must be at least 16 years of age  to volunteer on site. Volunteers ages 16-17 must have parental consent. To learn more about volunteer opportunities for youth under 16, click here.

It takes a lot of resources to keep a Habitat build site running smoothly and even more resources to complete a Habitat home. We ask you consider matching your volunteer impact with a financial contribution. In honor of our 30th anniversary, we encourage a donation of $30 per volunteer, which helps cover our cost to train our volunteers, buy building materials for your build day and arrange a meaningful and impactful volunteer experience. You can donate online here and we'll add it to our volunteer donation total!

We know that the time you donate on the build is valuable, and we know that you and Habitat are working toward the same goal — to help a family build their home. Matching your on-site volunteer impact with a donation helps us all move that much closer to achieving that shared vision: a community where everyone has a decent place to call home. You can match your volunteer impact here.

Once you sign up for a shift, you'll receive an email with all of the details you need to know about your volunteer day. You can also sign up for day-of text updates and on-site check-in.

Need to change or cancel your shift? You can do that in your volunteer portal here.
