Volunteer to Build Homes

Volunteers are the heart of our organization and help us to carry out our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  We welcome anyone over the age of 16 and no experience is necessary to volunteer at the construction site or in the ReStore!

Individual & Civic Group Construction Volunteer Opportunities

We train on site, and you are welcome to volunteer for one day, on a regular weekly basis, or semi-regularly when you have the time. Volunteers are required to stay for the entirety of the work day which is from approximately 8:45 AM – 3:30 PM.  All volunteers must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

*At this time, volunteer days are limited due to delays in the construction process. As our delays are resolved, volunteer opportunities will open back up*

Corporate Build Days

The Corporate Team Build program offers companies a tangible way to make a difference in our community while creating an inspiring atmosphere for employees. We provide all the tools, materials, and training – you just provide a tax-deductible donation and the helping hands. All volunteers must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Included:

  • Reserved volunteer day for 6-12 employees at our construction site in Freeport where your team will spend the day building a home
  • Lunch and t-shirts for all participants
  • Recognition as a Team Build Sponsor on Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland’s website and social media pages
  • The chance for your team to learn useful skills and build camaraderie while making a real difference in your own community

Financial Contribution:

  • $2,500 tax-deductible donation to cover the cost of building materials and supervision for the day

If  you are interested in participating in a Corporate Team Build Day, reach out to Kate at kate@habitatme.org or call 207-772-2151 x 107.

We appreciate all levels of support and understand that not all companies are able to contribute financially. Groups are not required to donate in order to volunteer and may participate in our individual volunteer days. These days may have limited availability.
