Firelands Habitat For Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with God and families in need. Though the vast majority have no construction experience or building skills, volunteers are involved in most phases of construction. By working side-by-side with the family who will live in the house, our volunteers experience for themselves the joy created when a family is able to realize their dream of home ownership.
Time commitments vary; some volunteers dedicate every day of the week to Firelands Habitat For Humanity and others spend just a few hours each month working on projects or in the ReStore. As a volunteer for Firelands Habitat For Humanity, you can choose to volunteer as little or as often as you would like. Our construction volunteers work every Wednesday and Saturday from 7:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Construction volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
Habitat volunteers contribute more than muscle. Creativity, strategy, and technical skills are among the many invaluable traits volunteers bring to the organization. With a minimal staff, Firelands Habitat For Humanity depends upon volunteer committees for support with projects like Family Selection, Family Support, Public Relations, Construction Skills Training, and Volunteer Services. We also offer opportunities in our ReStore, a volunteer-run building materials recycling center. Volunteers are a tremendous help that directly or indirectly result in the construction of simple, decent homes.
