Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Without volunteer labor the increased construction cost of each home would prevent it from being affordable for future Habitat Homeowners. Take the first step in helping to make a family’s dream of homeownership come true.

Volunteer Coordinator

Roberta works with individuals and groups to help you schedule a volunteer experience with Habitat.


Research YouTube Links: 
Habitat for Humanity provides Partner Families with homeowner education classes to assure a successful transition from renter to homeowner. Assist our Family Service Manager by Volunteering to compile a list of area speakers willing to share helpful information about homeownership or researching credible YouTube links for educational assistance for new homeowners – landscape, lawn maintenance, how to unclog a drain, installing backsplash, etc. Specific topics will be provided by our Family Services Manager.
Contact Neighbors for Free Security Light Installations: 
You can make an enormous difference in the University Park neighborhood by researching properties in the area, looking up phone numbers and making a few calls from your home. Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Network program will be installing solar powered security lights in the University Park neighborhood this fall. This is a direct response to the University Park Neighborhood Plan’s call to action for neighbors to turn on their front porch lights to create a safer, more secure environment to live, work and play.
