WE’RE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS to work with us on Fridays and Saturdays on our current build in Franklin.  (We’re on a brief volunteer hiatus through mid-February to allow for professionals to help get us under-roof.)  Please email Director.HCHH@gmail.com if you’re interested in coming out as an individual or group.  Also, we’re looking to develop a group of volunteer “regulars”–those who’d like to volunteer 2 or more Fridays a month on a regular basis. 

Typical work days are from 9:30AM to 3PM.  (Fridays may be 1/2 days, T.B.D. on a week by week basis, in order to allow our PT Construction Manager some planning time.) In order to be sure that we have enough materials and tasks, we ask that you R.S.V.P. and receive a confirmation before coming out.
