General information about building

Habitat builds homes year-round. We can get volunteers involved with construction from Tuesdays through Saturdays, 7:45 am – 3:30 pm.  No prior construction experience is needed for construction volunteers.

Proper attire will make your day more comfortable and enjoyable.  Put your name on all of your belongings, as Habitat assumes no responsibility for lost, damaged, or stolen items.  There is no central place to store and secure personal belongings. Other suggested items are plastic drinking cups/water bottles, work boots or sneakers, gloves, wide-brimmed hat/visor, sunglasses, and sunblock. We abide by our Age Regulations – check them out here.

Verification of Volunteer Service

If you are completing hours for school or an organization and need your hours of service verified by our Volunteer Services staff make sure you get your paperwork signed the day you are volunteering. If you do not have a form – we always have volunteer verification forms available in the office or on-site. Please note: that we do not keep long-term tracking of volunteer hours — so make sure to get your verification form signed the day you serve your hours.

Volunteer Waivers Required

Everyone who wishes to volunteer must sign a volunteer waiver the first time they volunteer that year. Signed waivers are kept on file for that calendar year. Waivers are available at the construction site or you can print yours here and bring it already filled out.
