Midland Habitat Volunteers

You do not have to be part of a group to become a volunteer.  We have other areas where help is needed besides the construction site. Our ReSTORE is always in need of volunteers as well as the office. 

We welcome all who want to help and we will find a place to put your skills to use!

10 Reasons to Volunteer with Habitat

 

10. Every hour each volunteer puts in is another hour we don't have to pay someone to do the same job keeping our building costs low

9. Even the smallest or seemingly insignificant job is important to building a quality home for our homeowners.

8. When volunteering in a group, a special sense of community is formed as the day goes on

7. There is a tangible result to your efforts

6. Our future homeowners work side by side with volunteers. You might get to know one of these special families that you are helping.

5. When our homeowners see people from the community helping build their houses, it helps motivate them through their 350 sweat equity hours. 

4. Get to use powertools!

3. Tony, Rico and Andy make a day of work a lot of fun

2. You do not need any experience

1. Affordable housing in Midland is an essential need for our families. By providing safe decent housing, you are helping not only provide a home for a family, you are also giving a family hope

 

Groups

Volunteering as a group is a great way of bonding and building a sense of community with friends, family, co-workers, church, civic groups or others that just want to get together to make a real change in their community.  Midland Habitat can work with groups up to 20 people at one time. If you are interested scheduling a work day, please call Cathy at 432-686-8877.
