Volunteer to Help Build a House

Every Habitat home is built by volunteers. We usually build two days per week – one weekday and one Saturday – 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. No prior experience is necessary; we offer on-site training and provide all the tools. All construction volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

For safety and liability reasons we cannot accommodate walk-ins; individuals must schedule work days ahead of time. Click on the VolunteerUP icon below to register, then find available construction sites and build dates on our calendar. You can sign up for shifts right from your computer. Easy!

Non-Construction Volunteer Opportunities

We are so much more than construction! If you can’t see yourself swinging a hammer, there are still a number of ways we can use your expertise or talents. Join one of our many committees, prepare food for people on site, sign up to make a quilt, coordinate construction site volunteers, help out in our office, or work one-on-one with homeowner families. And we always need well-organized folks who can help keep our construction sites running smoothly. Contact our Volunteer Services Manager at 508-362-3559 x16 or by email to learn more.

Crew Leader/Team Day Coach Program

If you can perform basic construction tasks, have a desire to learn new construction techniques, and like teaching others, we need your help! As a Crew Leader or Team Day Coach, you’ll work with small groups of volunteers to keep them involved, maintain quality control in a diplomatic manner, and troubleshoot.  You’ll make it possible for us to build more and build better!

Youth Programs

Youth Programs

Although you have to be 16 to participate in construction, there are other ways that youth can help Habitat. We can supply you with youth-friendly fundraising ideas, Habitat curriculum, or you can participate in a hands-on project for youth groups. Or, we have occasional opportunities for youth aged 14 or 15 to participate in landscaping or painting - check the construction schedule to see when those activities are going on.  Contact our Volunteer Services Manager at 508-362-3559 x16 or by email to learn more.
