We are always looking for new volunteers who are willing to spend time with us in the following areas:

Construction & Build Site Volunteer
Our homes are built almost entirely by volunteers, both skilled and unskilled. Whether you are a contractor or have never picked up a hammer in your life, we need your help. We have several construction sites across the Cincinnati area. All the equipment and safety gear you need for the day is provided and no previous experience is necessary. Orientations take place at the start of each shift. Sign up online today. 
If you have a combination of construction experience, team leadership skills and regular availability, you may be interested in becoming a Crew Leader or Crew Team member.Crew Leaders are an integral part of the Habitat mission. We look for high potential volunteers who would be able to motivate, teach and lead a group of (potentially) inexperienced volunteers in a construction task for the day. For more information, email our Volunteer Coordinator.
