Volunteer and change someone’s life — it could be yours

Habitat sets the stage for families and volunteers to come together. A family partners with Habitat and contributes their “sweat equity” or their own labor. A volunteer offers them a hand up, providing the support and the “muscle” that often means homes can be built at considerably lower costs. At a Habitat build site, relationships are formed and friends are made.

Habitat builds offer volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups, on weekends and weekdays, for the novice or the pro. So whether you’re a retired construction worker who isn’t quite ready to hang up the hammer or a busy mom who wants to squeeze in some service on the weekend, we have a place for you—working side-by-side with a future homeowner as they work to build a more secure future.

If you have any questions, email Habitat at volunteer@habitat-lenawee.org or call 517-265-6157.

For youth volunteers, please check our age requirements or learn more about our group volunteer opportunities.  All volunteers need to complete and sign a waiver of liability form each calendar year.
