We often have school, religious, business, civic, or family groups volunteer together on a group build day. The ideal group size is between 5 and 15 people, but larger groups are sometimes an option. If you have more than 5 people coming to the build site, you must call the office at 361-573-2511 and schedule ahead of time. This allows our site supervisors to prepare for you to have a good experience. Please note that our ability to accept groups depends on the amount of work.
Whether this is your first company volunteer event, or you’re seasoned pros, Habitat provides a fun, easy and engaging experience. We’re in the business of building safe, affordable housing, and would love to work with you. Many businesses are now seeing the short- and long-term benefits of bringing employees outside the walls of the office, and into the volunteer space.
We invite your community organization to become a partner with Habitat in working toward our mission. And we consider our partnerships to be just that—partnerships. We want you to be proud of the work we do together. Our work in the Golden Crescent community, and also throughout the world, exponentially increases through trusted community partners. Building safe, affordable homes literally takes a village.
As an ecumenical Christian Ministry, Habitat is founded on principles that transcend theological and religious differences. Simply put, Habitat provides people of all faiths an opportunity to live in a simple, affordable home.
