Every Habitat homeowner is required to help build their home and must log at least 1000 hours of labor. That’s a lot for any one person and they need your help and support. If you have experience with construction or a willingness to learn, come work alongside the Homeowners as they build homes and hope.
Habitat for Humanity is currently in search of a few devoted volunteers willing to become an integral part of the Habitat family in Southwest Montana for the foreseeable future. Professional Volunteers would not be required to work on every job site or have a regular schedule, but would be asked to regularly attend volunteer building events and stay in touch with the local Habitat office. Professional Volunteers are still considered volunteers and therefore will not receive monetary compensation, but will be crucial to bringing affordable housing to Southwest Montana and joining a close network of volunteers and Habitat employees. These positions would be ideal for a young person looking to gain experience in a construction or community outreach setting or a retired person that is looking for a meaningful way to use their time and skill set.
The Habitat office can be a busy place, and your time spent at our front desk greeting visitors, answering the phones, taking messages, and doing light filing tasks takes a bit of the load off of our staff. This is a good match for retirees, college students, or anyone interested in volunteering in a small office setting.
Many of our homeowners hear about the opportunity to build their own home from a friend who heard about it, or someone that built their home, or they talked with a Habitat representative at a community event. Word of mouth is the most effective way to reach those in need of a safe and stable home and we need your help to get the word out. Outreach volunteers are our advocates in the field. They get the word out by attending community events like the Farmer’s Market, speaking with civic and religious groups, and talking to neighbors, friends and family. Outreach volunteers must receive an orientation before beginning their volunteer work.
Help is needed in Centerville to go door to door to complete a neighborhood wide community engagement effort beginning this summer to better understand what residents like and don’t like about where they live. This is a great opportunity for anyone that likes talking to people and is interested in community development and engagement.
Habitat ReSale Store
Gently used building material is accepted in the ReSale Store and then sold to the community at a discount. This helps keep reusable items out of the landfill, is an inexpensive option for those with items they no longer have a need for, and provides the community with a source of heavily discounted items like doors, windows, scrap lumber and much more. Resale Store volunteers help clean, organize, inventory, load and unload items, answer questions, and provide general customer service. If you have a general knowledge of building material or a desire to help people with their do-it-yourself projects then the ReSale Store is a great match for you!
Sign up to volunteer at 821 S. Arizona Street in Butte MT, any Thursday, Friday or Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
