At the site, you will have the opportunity to meet other volunteers, work side by side with our season SWAT team, get to know the family who will be the future homeowners and have fun making their dream come true.
Habitat hosts two builds a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Due to the limitations in days and the number of people we can have at the build site at once, we cannot accept “walk-on” volunteers. Individuals must be registered before they volunteer and they must have signed up for a shift on the volunteer calendar to participate.
Volunteering as a group is a great way to strengthen team spirit, create memories and give back to the community in a powerful way. You can arrange for your company, church, fraternity or sorority or civic group to work together at the construction site building a home. If you would like to schedule a build day for a group you should email Regina Macias, Volunteer Manager or call 505-359-2432.
Volunteers do not need to have any experience or any special skill to be part of a Habitat building crew. Training is provided.
A work day is 8am – 2pm.
Before you leave home eat breakfast. Dress appropriately with clothes that are not baggy. Tie long hair back and remove jewelry. Sunscreen and sunglasses are advisable. Bring work gloves if you have them and wear sturdy, close toed shoes.
Lunches are provided for all volunteers.
