Since we rely on volunteer labor to complete our building projects and keep the cost of the home down for the future homebuyers, we really need your support!  We are always looking for skilledandunskilled individuals and groups to partner with us in the building process and there is always a place for every individual on our site.  At certain points along the build, professional sub-contractors, such as drywall tapers, vinyl/carpet installers, cabinet installers, and finish carpenters are also in need.


NOTE: No experience or tools are necessary; Habitat will provide all tools and safety equipment, as well as instruction on specific tasks.


If you would like to volunteer with Habitat, please scroll down to view the build calendar for availability and call our office at (406) 257-8800 or email outreach@habitatflathead.org to schedule.    If you would like to volunteer in other ways, we are always looking for lunch donations to feed our hard working volunteers.  Please contact our Community Outreach Coordinator for more information.
