Invest in Families with Your Time

Our volunteers help keep our home-building costs low. Construction volunteers are able to complete all non-trade-specific functions on the job site with help and guidance from Habitat staff and volunteer Crew Leads.

Help build a Habitat home — no experience necessary! Our construction staff and crew leads will teach you everything you need to know during your volunteer shift.

Build site volunteers must be 16 years and older. Interested volunteers who are ages 16 & 17 please request a minor waiver from Andrea at Minor volunteers are required to have adult supervision with them at all times.

your time makes a difference

  • I couldn’t have done this without everyone who came together from the community to make this happen. Without you, I wouldn’t have this opportunity and I cannot thank you enough.

  • You will never know how grateful I am for everyone at Habitat. You continue to change lives every day. You have given me the opportunity to give a 12-year-old child with autism a safe place to be when his grandmother needs help. For that, I am so thankful.

Donate Lunch to Build Site

All ages welcome! Feed our construction volunteers and Partner Families as they build Habitat homes in our community. This is an excellent opportunity for church groups or families with children. All lunch donors are encouraged to stick around and share the meal with us, the more the merrier!

Unique Volunteer Opportunities

Water + Snack Donations

We’re always in need of water, Gatorade, or snacks to have on hand for volunteers and it’s a great way to start a competition between classrooms, company departments, or Cub Scout Dens. If you or your group are able to donate any of these items we would be so grateful!

You can bring donations to the job site during your volunteer shift or email Andrea at to schedule a drop-off at our Corporate Office or ReStore.
