HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Construction sites are the heart of our organization. Volunteers help us to build homes and keep them affordable.

DESCRIPTION

Join us on the construction site! We have many different opportunities including new construction, home repair, renovations and our paint shop. 


ITEMS NEEDED

Make sure to print out a minor waiver and have a parent/guardian sign it. 

Volunteers must wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes (tennis shoes are fine but no crocs or flip-flops). 

Please dress in clothes that you do not mind getting dirty as construction sites are not clean.

Please bring a sack lunch and a water bottle. Water stations will be provided on site.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Must be at least 16 years of age.

Paint shop volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. If under 16, you must be accompanied by an adult.
