Habitat for Humanity of Warren County is built on volunteers, like you! Through time and talents of volunteers whole neighborhoods improve and completely transform. Through this transformation, families achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life.
Volunteers are needed for many different types of positions including construction, professional skills (architect, graphic designer, photographer, accounting, attorney), and more. Do you have other professional skills to contribute? Can you provide lunches or baked goods for volunteers on a construction site? You might fit a key volunteer position! Please fill out the form below and let us know how you would like to contribute!
Sessions are currently being held online via Zoom on the last Tuesday of each at 6:30 p.m. and the last Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. Send an e-mail to [email protected] to receive the Zoom meeting link.
