How To Volunteer

As a volunteer for the Home For A Hero Community Build Project, there is always a place for you to bring your unique talents and skills. Building experience is not necessary to volunteer with us as our staff and key volunteers will provide you with all the training needed. And, our partner family works alongside our volunteers while they are earning “sweat equity,” so it’s a great way to meet future Habitat homeowners.

Approximately 4,000+ visits of skilled and non-skilled volunteers will be needed to complete the project. In addition, twenty-five to thirty volunteers skilled in the construction trade are needed to supervise and train the volunteers under the direction of the Habitat construction supervisor.

Construction Support:
Being on the construction site is a rewarding experience. While volunteers building on site must be at least 16 years old, we offer non-building programs for all ages that support our construction efforts.

  • Building on Site
  • Crew Leaders
  • Landscapers
  • Greeters/Site hosts
  • Home Dedication
  • Providing volunteer lunches
