House Builds and Home Repairs

Join our amazing team of volunteers and participate in a house build on one of our existing projects.

No experience is necessary and we provide the supervision, tools and materials. Construction work days are typically Tuesday and Friday.

Our crews usually work from 9am-3pm, depending on construction status and weather.

Please do your best to arrive on time. We want to provide you as much volunteer work time as possible but it is vital to have everyone present for a welcome and safety talk.
