Construction Volunteers

If you are interested in swinging a hammer, pounding nails and building houses with us, please note the following:

  • Volunteers work from 8:45am - 4:00pm Wednesday - Saturday, and Tuesday Noon - 4pm year-round. 
    • We do not build on Sundays or Mondays
  • Availability of openings varies depending on workload, time of year, etc.
  • Our online system lists the days we currently have open for volunteers.
  • Half-day shifts are ONLY permitted on Tuesdays. By design Tuesdays are half-days that start at Noon. Please eat lunch before you come to site on Tuesdays. We will not break for lunch, but will have a 15 minute break half-way through the work shift.
  • Age Restriction: 16-17 year olds can build with us only after submitting a Parental Permission Form. No one under the age of 16 is allowed on our construction sites.
  • Groups are strictly limited to 6 people. Larger groups may be accepted on Fridays, but only as work is available. This varies depending on workload, time of year, day of the week, sponsor commitments. To secure a group day, please call us at 546-1470.
  • No skills needed, our Construction Supervisors are trained professionals who will walk you through your assigned tasks while volunteering.
  • Priority in scheduling is offered to churches/schools/organizations with an active Habitat club or chapter.

Questions or Cancellation:

We do build year-round and in snow/rain, cold, or heat so long as conditions are safe for working. Please bring clothing appropriet for being outside in these elements. For issues of inclement weather our on-site, ReStore, and office volunteer opportunities will close when the Rochester City School District has also closed - so be sure to check TV or Radio for this cancellation.
