Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone of Habitat for Humanity. Whether you are a volunteer in the office, at the Home Improvement Store, or on the construction site- you are making a difference! Volunteering helps keep the cost of the homes low for our partner families. Volunteer workers contribute around 3000 hours per house, working side by side with our partner families. Not only are you contributing to our various projects, you are promoting understanding and support too. Learn about our volunteer opportunities below.

 

For individual volunteers, please complete the Individual Volunteer Form and submit forms to Alan Stamper at alan@goodnewshabitat.org.

You may also submit Liability Waivers with your volunteer form or feel free to fill one out on-site!

Assist Good News Habitat in building hope and community one home at a time!

Habitat provides all materials and tools necessary. All volunteers are under the supervision of our Habitat construction site superintendents in order to guarantee a safe experience and to build or rehab a quality home. No prior construction skills required! Our site superintendents will provide hands-on leadership, teaching, motivation and encouragement to all groups, individuals, sponsors and future homeowners! 

All volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Any volunteer under the age of 18, must have a guardian signature on our Volunteer Liability Waiver.

Office Volunteer

All volunteers must be at least 15 years old. Any volunteer under the age of 18, must have a guardian signature on our Volunteer Liability Waiver.

Themed Builds

Participate in and/or support our themed builds; Women Build Day and Collegiate Challenge!

 

Women Build: The Habitat for Humanity Women Build program recruits, educates and nurtures women to build and advocate for simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities. By volunteering, you will learn new construction skills needed to effectively contribute to Habitat’s mission while building or renovating houses at a Women Build event. You will also get to join other community volunteers and homeowners to build strength and stability through shelter. You may also make a donation for the Women Build Day to help supply building materials, tools, and lunches for volunteers. Please contact us at 765-962-5986 for more information.  

 

Collegiate Challenge: The Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge program provides alternative school break volunteer opportunities to high school and college students. It offers an education all its own. Whether your group is on the build site or serving in the Home Improvement Store, you’ll be learning about poor living conditions and how decent, affordable housing builds strength, stability and self-reliance for families. You will have the chance to make a difference in your community or a city you've never been to. Get your friends together and sign up for a Collegiate Challenge trip today. You may also make a donation for the Collegiate Challenge weeks to help supply building materials, tools, and lunches for volunteers. Please contact us at 765-962-5986 for more information.

 

All volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Any volunteers under the age of 18, must have a guardian signature on our Volunteer Liability Waiver.

Volunteer Relations Committee

Help improve our volunteer experience!

The Volunteer Relations Committee exists to identify, recruit, orient, utilize, retain and recognize volunteers in order to carry out the ministry of Habitat for Humanity.  The committee is responsible for ensuring that the program is volunteer-friendly and conducive to a rewarding experience to maintain the highest possible level of participation.  As a committee member you will be an advocate for our volunteers, making sure that they have a great experience and want to come back time and time again!

Partner Family Liaison

We would like to extend an invitation to you to, as a member of our great community, the opportunity to provide an invaluable service to your fellow citizens. Do you have excellent listening skills or the ability to establish and nurture healthy working relationships? Are you sensitive to, or have experience with, issues that may result from living on a limited income? Are you someone who is skilled in a variety of areas, such as budgeting, home maintenance, and community assets? Would you be willing to help us promote family and community unity? There is a need for people like you within our circle!

 

We are looking for individuals to give a “hand up” to our Partner Families. As a Partner Family liaison, you will share in their experience of becoming a homeowner, providing crucial support throughout their journey. The experience could be just as rewarding to you as it is for them, and our entire community. If you want to make a difference or believe you have some of the qualities and skills listed above, please contact us! We would love to hear from you! Feel free to contact us at 765-962-5986
