Make a Difference and Volunteer
Habitat homes are built primarily by volunteers. We depend on volunteers who are willing to support low-income, hardworking families build lasting, sustainable futures. No construction experience is necessary. Habitat will provide skilled construction staff to train volunteers and supervise construction activities. All tools, safety equipment, and building materials needed for the day will be provided.
Our volunteer build days are typically Wednesday through Saturday from 8:00am – 3:00pm. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old in order to participate.
Individuals and groups may schedule days to work on the construction site by registering online at:
Plan on coming out to volunteer? Please print and sign our volunteer liability waiver, and bring it along with you on your volunteer day. Volunteers under the age of 18 will need to have a Minor Release signed by a parent or guardian. Also, check out our sheet of Frequently Asked Questions which address subjects such as age requirements, what to expect on your volunteer day, what to bring, etc.
When you register online you will receive complete details about building with us including directions, what to bring and when to arrive.
Frequently asked Questions
Do I need construction experience to help build?
No, it’s great if you have construction skills but certainly not necessary. Your crew leader will ensure that you receive training for the task at hand. If you have expertise in some aspect of construction, please let us know.
What should I wear?
Volunteers at construction sites and our ReStore wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty, torn, or even ruined. Closed-toe shoes are required. Dress in layers that are appropriate for indoor and/or outdoor work in whatever weather is happening during your build day.
How old do you have to be to volunteer?
We are age limited on who can volunteer since construction, by nature, is a dangerous environment. Youth under 16 years old are not allowed to volunteer on the construction site. Youths 16 and 17 years old are allowed to volunteer with a signed waiver from a parent or guardian. Adults 18 years and older just need to sign the online waiver when they sign up.
Habitat for Humanity has an urgent need for skilled construction supervisors.
Experienced construction supervisors are needed to help lead, supervise, and train teams of volunteers at our build sites. If you are interested in helping with this vital role please contact our Construction Volunteer Coordinator.
