Individual Build Volunteers

Volunteers are the foundation of our organization. It is through the generous donation of your time and talent that we are able to build safe, decent, and affordable homes for hard-working, qualified families throughout Essex County.

Age requirements – Please note that the minimum age for all volunteers on a building site, is 16.  Any volunteers under the age of 18 will be required to have a chaperone and may be limited to what work they can complete on-site.

No experience – no problem!

Each and every volunteer brings new vitality and strength and becomes part of the Essex County Habitat family. Experience is not necessary. We offer individuals and groups including corporate groups, schools, and faith-based organizations a wonderful way to build homes and build camaraderie. If you are looking for local volunteering opportunities to do some community service, acquire new skills, or put existing building skills to work, we welcome you to volunteer with Essex County Habitat and experience the joy of seeing a new family move into their home as a result of your contributions.
