Welcome to all our volunteers, past and present and thank you for thinking of us! Your help will be valued in so many ways. You don’t need to have prior construction experience. Just come out with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. Our homes are built with your volunteer hours; you are the core of our organization. We welcome everyone, with all levels of skill to assist building the next home for our partner family.
