Volunteer Women Build

Build events

Join one of our special events.

While scheduled Habitat builds take place on a regular basis, we also host special events in local communities like yours that may suit your particular interests.

These include things such as a focus on beautification or renovation of homes and neighborhoods, youth involvement activities, opportunities for veterans, green-building practices, Women Build events, the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, Home Builders Blitz, World Habitat Day, and Habitat on the Hill, among others.

Consider this an occasion to meet new people while strengthening your community by building safe, affordable housing. You’ll have the ability to improve the lives of people, work alongside future Habitat homeowners, learn different skills or advocate for affordable housing. In fact, there are numerous benefits when it comes to volunteering.

You don’t need any experience. Bring your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors you already know. Are you ready to find out for yourself?
