Most people think of swinging a hammer when they think about volunteering for Habitat. Due to the tremendous amount of planning and management required to build just one home, we have a constant need for committee members and volunteers to help with various other tasks. Many of our younger volunteers (under the age of 16) and families who'd like to volunteer together opt to help out here... You don't need to be an expert in any of these fields to help out! There are many tasks that require only a willingness to learn and work with others.
Listed below are some of the non-construction volunteer opportunities.
- Members for Committees —
We have many committees which often need assistance or new committee members. Please visit our Committees page for more information about each of our committees
- Workshop Leaders —
Also needed are volunteers with extensive knowledge in plumbing, electrical, heating/venting, or Home Owner Maintenace, Bugeting, Repairs, etc. that would be willing to teach staff and/or partner families; perhaps conduct monthly workshops.
