Be a Construction Volunteer
While home construction and renovation isn’t the only way to serve at Habitat, it is a big part of what we do. Volunteering on a worksite is perfect for those who want to get their hands dirty – and it’s great for team-building, too!
Something for Everyone
There is no shortage of volunteer opportunities at Habitat, so whatever your passion and skill set, you can join us in impacting communities. Read on to learn about some of the ways you can make a big difference – no experience required.
Build and improve homes, build and improve futures.
When you volunteer in construction, you’ll see changes in the house, changes in the surrounding neighborhood, and changes within yourself. If that sounds like a great way to spend a day (or two, or three), we’d love to talk with you about how to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio.
We welcome individual volunteers, as well as groups of all kinds. Spending a day or even a few hours helping others can be a great team-building activity for a group from your workplace, church, family, club, or civic organization. And volunteering isn’t just good for others – as it turns out, it’s pretty healthy for you also. Who knew?
Family support volunteers work directly with future homeowners, helping them in a variety of ways throughout their journey.
Hospitality volunteers provide snacks or lunches for our construction sites, as well as dedications and other special events.
Office support volunteers help keep the Habitat ministry running smoothly by assisting with filing, bulk mailings, and special events.
