Whether you’re a skilled crafts person or an untrained volunteer, working Mon-Fri 9-5, or are currently unemployed we could use your help. We’ll give you the opportunity to experience first hand “that no one can do everything but everyone can do something“. Men and women are encouraged to lend a helping hand. Youth, sixteen years old and under must be accompanied and supervised by their parent, guardian, teacher, pastor or scout leader.

Construction Sites

(Call 863-292-2256 to schedule a day to volunteer at a site near you! )

  • Work at construction sites begins at 8:00am and lasts until 12:00pm. Depending upon weather conditions, the task for the day, and the number of volunteers we may leave early if done or stay later to finish up. Each site is supervised by an experienced Habitat Volunteer Site Foreman and/or Habitat Staff Project Manager.
  • Habitat for Humanity provides you with everything you need to help build! If you have a favorite hammer or tool belt you like to use bring it with you! 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 call ahead to schedule a time convenient for your group.
