We believe that volunteers are vital to our success and are the rock of our organization. We are best served by providing the community with fulfilling opportunities to utilize their skills, time and knowledge.
We believe that community engagement:
- Improves our services and relationships with the community we serve.
- Allows us to expand our capacity and enhance our services.
- Provides us with the community's point of view and advocates for the services we provide.
Volunteers are a valued essential part of accomplishing our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.
We have multiple ways to get involved whether as an individual or group.
Volunteers assist with the building of all stages of the home including: framing, hanging drywall, roofing, siding, trusses, grading and painting. No previous construction skills are required. We will provide all of the tools needed and our construction manager will teach and instruct you on the duties of the day. Current construction days are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm.(weather permitting) with a lunch break. We build throughout the community. For more information on what to expect, please visit our FAQ.
Volunteers perform a variety of tasks including customer service, clean donated materials, stock shelves and prepare sales floor, unload donated materials from vehicles and other duties.
Volunteers are needed throughout the year to assist with special events, projects and fundraisers. Event may include: Good Life Halfsy, Scrub Day and Gatsby Gives. Mark your calendar for the 2019 Good Life Halfsy on Sat., Nov. 2 and Sun., Nov. 3. Contact Dani to volunteer.
As a way to say thank you, we provide lunch to our volunteer construction crew and groups. Hospitality Volunteers make an investment to build stronger communities by donating lunch to these volunteers. Providing lunch can be as simple as weekly, monthly or even quarterly. Lunch is provided on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 11:30 am. Contact Dani for more information.
