Build Site Volunteer

Our homes are built almost entirely by volunteers, both skilled and unskilled. Whether you are a contractor or have never picked up a hammer in your life, we can use your help.

All equipment and safety gear (except shoes) is provided and must be worn at all times. Orientations take place at the start of each shift and prior to a build.

No previous experience is necessary! Minimum age requirement is 16 and will require a parent signature. A letter of reference for hours volunteered will only be provided after a minimum of 40 hours have been completed.

Group Build Day volunteer

We welcome you to build with us! Your group can directly help hardworking families to escape substandard living conditions, gain stability and improve their lives, through building an affordable home.

Habitat Huronia offers a unique way for groups to give back to the community by building together during one of our Habitat Team Build Days. Equally rewarding, you can also volunteer alongside a Habitat family! Habitat Huronia relies on the generosity of our supporters to fund the construction of our homes. Groups will have a fundraising goal or they can choose from a pre-set level.

We make it easy to fundraise by providing your team with a personalized online fundraising page to use to reach out to your colleagues, friends and family and request that they sponsor your volunteer efforts. If you prefer, we can also provide printed pledge forms.
