WHAT KINDS OF GROUPS VOLUNTEER WITH HABITAT?
We have many different kinds of groups volunteer at our construction sites, our Neighborhood Revitalization activities, and our ReStore. We host corporate groups, school groups, faith groups, and all kinds of civic groups of five or more people. Some benefits of group volunteering include teambuilding, learning new skills, working outside, and giving back to the community!
Please note that that corporate groups that wish to volunteer with us are required to participate in our Build Day Sponsorship Program. The amount varies depending on your group's size. Fill out the Group Interest Form below to get started.
This financial support will help defray the expensive costs of land, construction, and materials. Every corporate group that sponsors their build day helps lower the cost the family will pay to purchase their home. Therefore, by volunteering and sponsoring, your support is twofold. Once we have some volunteer spots tentatively held for your group, I will connect you to Lita Andersen, our Corporate Development Officer, who will reach out with more information. If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact her at LAnderson@HabitatGSF.org.

*Please note that at Mt.Burdell Place we are currently only offering internships in Construction Leadership with a focus on foundations or framing.
This program provides a general introduction to residential, wood-framed construction. Interns will be trained in various construction skills based on the scope of work available during their participation. The safe use of basic power tools will always be included, along with framing, siding, window installation, roofing, painting and/or other trades. Through weekly trainings and hands-on practice, interns in this program will work as a team to complete multiple installations and phases of work on one or more houses. The focus will be on mastery of technical skills. No experience is necessary.
