Faith Group Build Days
This is our most popular volunteer activity, because Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. No experience is required! We schedule volunteers every week, Wednesday through Saturday. A workday typically runs from 8:30am to 3:30pm. DC Habitat has all of the tools and construction crew leaders necessary for your day.
DC Habitat works to provide affordable housing solutions for low-income families in need. And our aim is to build as many homes as we can. Of course, the number of homes we can build depends mainly on how much money we raise. Our sustainability depends on the vital combination of funds and volunteer labor provided by our supporters. For this reason, we ask that faith groups make a donation when they spend a build day on our construction site. This number is adjusted based on the number of volunteers a group wants to have on the construction site. If your group is unable to contribute the suggested amount, we are here to work with you.
Since DC Habitat is unable to provide lunches to volunteer groups that build with us, we are seeking support from local faith groups who are able to bring and serve lunch to the volunteers on the construction site. This is also a great way to get your youth involved!
