Costs and Benefits of Volunteering
What does it cost to become a Hancock County Habitat volunteer? What are the benefits? The cost is a few hours a week or a month, spent while building at the house site, serving on a committee, performing office-related work, or baking brownies for the workers. Our volunteer opportunities are open to all and we are quite ecumenical and welcoming. The benefits include working with other dedicated people who want to eliminate substandard housing in our area, gaining building skills, and experiencing the feeling that comes with knowing you are giving a hand up to someone in your community.
From the ground breaking ceremony to the house dedication, it is our volunteers who turn lumber, nails, roofing shingles, and gallons of paint into a real home for a deserving family.
Site Supervisors – If you are moderately handy, or are a skilled craftsman, your talents will be put to good use. We are always in need of supervisors for our Thursday and Saturday programs to instruct and guide our volunteers.
Community/Business Participation – Your business or community group provides volunteers for a day and we provide lunch and a team-building experience!
