Construction Volunteers

UPDATED 10/30/2020: Beginning Monday, March 16, our construction site will not host volunteers. This decision is made as part of our efforts to protect our community as we monitor COVID-19 and in accordance with guidelines from DC government. Please contact Whitney Canon, Volunteer Service & Corporate Partnerships Manager, at for more information.

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!
