The Experience Of A Lifetime

We build Habitat homes year-round and are always looking for energetic people to come and volunteer with us. Anyone can build and help local families create a stable future. No prior construction experience is necessary. We provide you with training, safety equipment, nourishment, and of course, fun! All you need to bring is a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.
