Working on a Habitat construction site is a great way to build a solid team, improve communication, and develop strong bonds that will last long after the sun has set.
Groups Making Lasting Connections in the Community
We’re grateful for the support of civic groups, clubs, and organizations that are committed to providing affordable, environmentally sustainable housing in Butte County.
No experience is required! New volunteers receive coaching from more experienced volunteers and from Habitat staff.
To schedule a build day with your group, contact Alaina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your group will need to designate a Team Leader to ensure everyone has an exceptional volunteer experience. The Team Leader will help recruit your group of volunteers and will be Habitat’s primary contact for group communication.
