Construction Volunteers

UPDATED 3/17/2021: Since March of 2020, our construction site has made the decision to not host volunteers. Due to the ongoing nature of the pandemic, we do not have a specific reopening date. This decision was made as part of our efforts to protect our community and our own staff as we monitor COVID-19 and in accordance with guidelines from DC government. Thank you to all who have submitted an application–it has been permanently saved for when we can resume normal volunteer operations. We look forward to the day we can welcome you to site again! 

We build homes and we want your help! DC Habitat’s construction crew utilizes volunteers each Wednesday through Saturday, year round. Though we schedule team build groups to volunteer on a majority of these workdays, we encourage you to check our volunteer calendar to view and sign up for build opportunities. We welcome your participation whether you are an experienced builder or you don’t know a sixteen-penny nail from a spackling knife!
