DutiesThere are many jobs on the build site that do not require construction experience but are integral to the successful completion and function of the home. We need help from general volunteers with dry-walling, painting, floor installation, site readiness and clean-up to give some examples. All volunteers are taught and supervised by a site manager, trained crew leaders and a site host.
Benefits* Our Habitat houses are almost completely built by volunteers who help support Habitat's mission and are part of the construction of a safe and affordable home for a family in your community. 
*Learn practical skills relevant to carpentry and construction. 
*Networking opportunities.
