Welcome to all our volunteers, past & 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 in building the next home for our partner family.
