Our team building opportunities offer your organization, service club, and even group of friends a chance to learn skills and work as a team while making a real difference in the lives of hard-working families and their communities. A combination of volunteer hours and financial contributions doubles your group’s impact.
On the build site, your team will work under the direction of Habitat staff and trained volunteers that are skilled in residential house construction. Working alongside other volunteers, including future Habitat homeowners, your team members will roll up their sleeves and work together to help families build strength, stability, and independence through affordable homeownership.
Help build homes and hope in our community. No construction experience is required!
