Volunteer at a Construction Site

The most popular volunteer activity is helping on the construction site. You'll work alongside our construction team and partner families from 9am to 3:30pm on your build day to help construct Habitat houses.

No previous construction skills are expected. Our skilled site supervisors and construction staff will provide the necessary tools, training, and safety information on site. Please consult the FAQ and Individual Volunteer Manual to review additional items including proper dress, food and drink.

Individual build days tend to fill up very quickly. We would like to give everyone the chance to volunteer, but safety comes first on our construction sites, and consequently we must limit the number of volunteers so that everyone is properly supervised. If you are unable to find a date that fits your schedule, look for opportunities volunteering with our ReStore. Please keep checking back as new opportunities will come up.
