How can I help?
Donate, volunteer and advocate. These are all components that shape all Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Be a corporate sponsor or an in-kind sponsor. Help families break the poverty barrier.
Beyond sponsorships, Habitat is always looking for additional construction volunteers to help build our homes. If you are interested in building as a group, or as an individual, please call in your contact information to (765) 653-5360 and a volunteer waiver will mail to you to complete. Availability on our build site is limited and we will only contact possible volunteers when there is availability and your group size matches our need. Sometimes, it may take a few months before volunteers are able to build with us.
Supervisor On Site (SOS)
Are you an individual who would like to build with us on a regular basis? Do you have good personal skills, are safety conscious, and are willing to learn Habitat’s construction techniques? If so, you may be interested in volunteering as a SOS. No building experience is necessary, but power tool competency is a must. Habitat’s SOS lead volunteers in the daily construction tasks and help provide those volunteers a safe and rewarding experience.
General Build Information
A Habitat build day usually starts at 7 a.m., ends around 3:30 p.m., and is held on Saturdays and Sundays, with a few Thursday/Friday build days mixed in. Depending on the day, volunteers might accomplish a variety of tasks including framing, insulation, siding, windows, doors, paint, cabinets, and landscaping. Habitat provides all of the necessary tools and instruction, so volunteers just need to be at least age 16 (16 & 17 year olds must have adult supervision), wear closed-toe shoes, and come dressed and ready to work. Volunteers under 16 and open-toe or open-heel shoes are not permitted on the build site at any time, except for the home dedication.
