Join the Habitat Crew
What is The Habitat Crew? The Habitat Crew is a group of men and women who regularly volunteer and invest their time with Habitat for Humanity. The Habitat Crew helps families and children discover the many benefits of decent, affordable housing. Whether you’re a master carpenter or have never picked up a hammer, a serving heart is all that is required. Opportunities are regularly available on Thursdays and Saturdays. Work us into your schedule twice a week or once a month – whatever works for you!
We build more than houses.
At Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio, we’re driven by the vision that everyone deserves a decent place to live. Since 1988, we have seen decent, affordable housing help families build the strength, stability, and self-reliance we all need.
At Habitat for Humanity, we bring people together to offer families a hand up, not a hand out. As an independent, non-profit, Christian housing ministry, we provide hard-working families and individuals the opportunity to purchase their own homes with an affordable zero-interest mortgage. To us and millions of people around the world, there is no better expression of faith and love than to help people with limited income build their own futures.
Help with Construction
Habitat for Humanity builds new homes and renovates existing structures. On-site projects range from framing to trim. Form groups, choose special projects, develop your skills, help make a house a home, and even discover a new passion!
Build in Our Workshop
Everything from painting, to building entire sheds, to fine woodworking happens in the Fred F. Silk Workshop at our Raff Road facilities. There are tools galore, and the entire space takes advantage of the dust collection system.
