What can volunteers expect from Habitat?

  • Safe Work Environments: Safety orientations begin every construction day, and safety equipment is provided.
  • Productive Work Days: Everything you need will be provided, and you'll see the tangible results of your work.
  • A Chance to Learn New Skills: No experience is necessary - our site supervisors are trained to teach everything you need to know.
  • Patience, Perspective and a Sense of Humor: We work hard and we have fun doing it!

What can Habitat expect from volunteers?

  • Prompt Arrival: Having everyone at orientation makes our work sites safer and more efficient and helps finish homes on schedule.
  • Safety: Follow instructions from your site supervisor for safety procedures and equipment usage.
  • Commitment: If you sign up to volunteer, we count on you, and so do our homebuyer families!
  • Flexibility: Sometimes weather doesn't cooperate, a task doesn't go according to plan or we need to refocus our efforts. Either way, we’ll make it work and hope you will too!


Before you strap on those tools . . .

Watch this Habitat safety orientation with building celebrity Steve Thomas. He'll guide you through the essentials and make sure you're ready for a safe day on site.
