Construction Volunteers

We need many volunteers to help us build new homes, and to paint and renovate existing ones. We welcome people with expertise as well as those who wish to learn. No experience is necessary. Volunteer and we'll teach you what you need to know. Think about organizing a work group from your college or school, from your church, mosque, or temple, or from your workplace or civic organization. Spend a day with friends building a dream home for someone else or come on your own and meet our wonderful volunteers.

How to get involved

When:
  • We need volunteers of any skill level NOW!
How:
  • Sign up online or by calling at 315.281.9375¬†or emailing at llabella@oneidacountyhabitat.org. Let us know what times and dates work and how many people you will be bringing.
  • We'll get back to you with a time, date, and other information. Lunch is usually provided by local restaurants and churches.
  • Take the Habitat for Humanity on-line safety course at http://www.hfhvolunteerinsurance.com/.
  • Fill out the waiver form. You must be 16 or older to help. If you are under 18 your parent or guardian must fill out and submit the minor waiver form before starting work. If you forget the form, we have plenty at the work site.
  • You must pre-register. Please do not show up at the worksite without pre-registering as we will not be able to accommodate you.
Where:
  • Show up at the current build site, at the appointed time and date, and help our partner family reach their goal of having a home of their own. If you can, please bring a hammer, a tape measure, and work boots.
  • Sign in and we'll have you working in no time.

Committee and Board volunteers

None of the construction of the new homes could happen unless we had an active corps of committee volunteers and board members: the people who help us raise money and publicize our programs and coordinate our volunteers. We are looking for talented and dedicated volunteers who can help us get things done.

How to get involved

  • Fill out the volunteer application form. Return it to us by email or regular mail. To read a description of the different committees, click on Committees.
  • We'll review your application and get back to you.
