A large portion of Habitat for Humanity’s volunteers support our non-profit’s mission by building an affordable house for a low-income family in need of a new home. If you are seeking a hands-on community service opportunity that allows you to learn more about construction materials and home renovations, this is the volunteer opportunity you have been searching for.
