Volunteers come from all walks of life and backgrounds, with a variety of interests and talents. If you have a special area of expertise, maybe it’s just what we need. The Habitat volunteer doesn’t always wear a hard hat. If construction is not your bag, there are many other ways to get involved and support the mission of Habitat for Humanity.
