VOLUNTEERS ARE OUR HEROES
You play an essential role in helping Habitat for Humanity of Flathead Valley fulfill our mission to build homes in partnership with qualified families in need of a hand up. Habitat is by the people, for the people! Nearly 90% of all construction activity is completed by volunteers just like you!
As a construction volunteer, you’re in good hands, under the guidance of our awesome Construction Team. With you, we can keep building homes, community, and hope! We build year-round and construction volunteers are essential to our success. This year we plan to complete 5 new homes and will need a 1,000 or more volunteers to complete our goal.
Please note that once you sign up to volunteer, you will be contacted by our Community Engagement Coordinator to request more information before providing you with build day details.
