As an inclusive, faith-based organization, we believe that groups from all walks of life and all backgrounds, regardless of faith tradition, can come together to build homes and change lives.
By taking action with Habitat, people of all faiths and backgrounds create a tangible impact in their community. Whether you build or renovate a home, advocate for affordable housing, educate your congregation, or raise funds to support the cause, you create change. You can team up with members of your own faith tradition or build bridges with those of another faith through service. Together, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Humanists, Jains, Baha’i, and all people can build strength and stability for their neighbors.
Schools and community groups, like Campus Chapter, Greek Life, Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, American Legion, and other nonprofit organizations, play a critical part in supporting affordable homeownership. Groups get involved in many ways like volunteering, using their voices as advocates, and financially supporting our work in the community. Group volunteer opportunities can include construction, playhouse builds, event support, and more. No matter how your school or community group gives back, you’ll be building better tomorrows!
Typically we reserve group build days 1-4 months in advance. For special events or last-minute needs, we may be able to book groups outside of that time frame.
No. However, our sponsors and team building groups receive priority scheduling and all remaining build days are first-come, first-served. If you choose to fundraise for a team build day, we can provide fundraising resources so you can keep our mission alive through your support.
If you can hang a picture, you can build a Habitat house. We provide training for volunteers of all skill levels, or will partner with specialized volunteers to match your skills to local needs.
5 volunteers is the minimum group size. The typical build day needs 20-25 volunteers, so we can rarely organize groups larger than 25 people. Sponsored build days, Playhouse Builds, and special events like Build-A-Thon can accommodate up to 200 people.
Half days are only available at our ReStores or through the Playhouse Program. All construction build days require a full-day commitment, 8:30 am to 4 pm.
Bring a water bottle, a lunch, work clothes, and a team spirit! Habitat provides all tools, materials, and supervision.
All construction and ReStore volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Contact us to organize Playhouse Build events or advocacy programs appropriate for younger ages with your youth group.
“What is great about the All Faiths Builds is that we can go to a Habitat site, and everyone is open and welcoming. We can talk about faith. It allows for those conversations to happen.”
