If you are interested in swinging a hammer, pounding nails and building houses, then volunteering on a build is for you! Our Site Managers are trained volunteers who will walk you through your assigned tasks while volunteering. Skilled trade volunteers are greatly appreciated. Reach out to the volunteer coordinator for current and future opportunities.


Houses aren’t built with hammer and nails alone. A lot of work happens before we ever get to the build site, and much of that work begins with our Committees. We are always looking for individuals with a variety of experience and skills to join our many committees. It only takes a few hours of your time each month to make a world of difference to those in need of a decent place to live.
