Hats are recommended and sun screen is encouraged. Please see the dress code requirements on the back of the volunteer registration form. Drinking water and toilet provisions are provided at every site.
  • Some homes are available to build at during the week. If you are busy on the weekend and still want to help we can find a site for you. For large groups of 5-10 special accommodations can be made. We will gladly work with your schedule. Please contact us to schedule.
