Build Site

The work of Habitat for Humanity has literally moved on the shoulders of volunteers.                                                   -Millard Fuller, Habitat founder

Swing a Hammer

We have build days on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting. You can sign-up and reserve your spot on the build site through our Volunteer website, VolunteerUP! Making a profile is easy, and you can view all upcoming build days!

We can schedule groups for build days. Click here to learn more.

What we provide: Water, tools, training, lunch on Saturdays

What you bring: Water bottle, tool belt (if you’d like), lunch on Tuesday/Thursday 

No matter the weather, dress appropriately.  That means closed toe shoes. Shorts are okay.

ALL volunteers must complete an online safety training course. (Required course titled “Volunteering on a Habitat for Humanity Job Site.”)

Instructions for the Construction Crew

  • Arrive between 8:45 and 9:00 a.m. 
  • Sign in. Remember to bring your waivers. (The one for adults is here. The one for minors is here.)
  • If you can only work part of the day, come first thing in the morning and leave early if needed. Please don’t show up in the middle of the day unless your shift is scheduled that way through our office.
  • Lunch is provided for crews working on Saturday. If you have dietary concerns, you may want to bring your own lunch.
  • Bring your own lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The usual schedule includes a lunch break around noon and resumes building until 3 or 3:30 p.m.

Any weather related closures will be posted on VolunteerUp and on our facebook by 8:15 a.m. the day of the build.

We’re always looking for construction professionals. Habitat needs licensed plumbers, electricians, mechanical contractors and other skilled professionals. Do let us know if you’d like to help one family’s dream become a reality.

There are age limits for our build sites. All volunteers on build sites must be at least 16 years old to work. Waivers for 16- and 17-year-olds must be signed by a parent or guardian before they come to the site.

 

Make a Meal

Volunteers are needed to make lunches for our Saturday construction crews. This means providing food for about 25 people and dropping it off at our current build site around 11:30 a.m. If you make a mean sandwich, let us know.

Spend time at the ReStore.

Here’s what they’re looking for.
