General Home Construction

Age Requirement: Must be 16 or over

Two Saturdays per month are scheduled build site workdays. Minor construction skills are useful, but training can be provided on site. All volunteers must register with the Habitat office prior to the volunteer day.

Please note that we sometimes are scheduling groups at least 60 days in advance. Our sponsoring groups are given scheduling priority as it is those who provide both financial support and volunteer time that allow us to build affordable homes.
