Starting March 1, 2021, we will begin welcoming group volunteers back to our Build Site. Because of COVID-19 requirements for social distancing, Build Days will be offered only to groups of no more than five participants.
At this time we are not accepting any individual volunteers. However, individual construction opportunities will resume shortly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates and more information.
Please fill out the Volunteer Inquiry Form below as it will help us coordinate schedules.
Thank you for your support and dedication to Habitat Greater Boston families!
Volunteer With Us
Group build days are a great opportunity for a company or group to involve their employees or members in a positive team-building activity. Your group will work alongside our construction team and partner families from 8:30am to 3:30pm on your build day to help construct Habitat houses. Group builds may be scheduled for single or consecutive days. Due to COVID-19, we are limiting build groups to five (5) volunteers on a build site per day. For safety reasons additional protocols have been implemented. All volunteers will be asked to review the protocols and complete a questionnaire. If your group has more than five (5) participants, please email us at email@example.com to discuss alternatives!
Explore the calendar below for Build Group Needed for an available group build date.
Complete and submit a group application.
Groups: Weekday: $2,000 | Weekend: $3,000
Schools, faith communities, ad hoc groups of friends and family, and small charities: $750
Thank you for choosing to volunteer with Habitat to help families break the cycle of poverty through homeownership.
