The driving force behind Habitat is its volunteers.
Volunteers join with prospective homeowners to provide housebuilding labor, administrative support, and assistance with Habitat’s fundraising efforts.
Other ways to help can include serving on our Board of Directors or on one of our operating committees. Individuals, organizations, corporations, student groups, and even military commands also provide tax deductible donations of money and materials that sustain the organization. In addition, Habitat work sites are places to build relationships as well as houses.
