Coronavirus / COVID-19 Update
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Beaches Habitat for Humanity! Your health and safety are important to us and we want to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable build experience.
Our volunteer builds have resumed with limitations. For the time being, opportunities are only available for future homeowners, volunteer Crew Leaders, and "experienced" volunteers.
We recognize this decision may be disappointing for some volunteers and groups who are looking forward to helping. However, as our team adjusts to a new way of building in light of the pandemic, we feel that limiting volunteer opportunities in the short term is the best choice for the long term health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and homeowners.
You can support our biggest and most active volunteer program. Build with us own your own, with a group, on spring break... You can take action for affordable housing by volunteering on our construction sites. Learn more
Anyone, age 16 or older, can sign up to help with home construction. No experience necessary!
Volunteering with your company, civic group or church is a great way to build camaraderie.
Certain offenders may be able to complete their mandated hours on our construction site.

Habitat for Humanity defines advocacy as changing policies and systems to eliminate barriers to adequate, affordable housing in order to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
In other words, while not visible like homes themselves, laws, regulations and rules about land and building are a major part of housing. Smart policies and systems can promote access to decent housing, while other policies and systems may create unnecessary barriers. These barriers may make it harder than it needs to be to find land for construction, build the home itself or be able to afford a place to live.
Just like building, advocating for smart policies and systems is a way to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
