Looking to volunteer with Habitat on a weekly basis, gain new skills and learn from a dedicated group?
The Construction Site
Volunteer individually or as a group. No experience is necessary.
Work with Habitat behind the scenes on one of our action teams.
The story goes that when our affiliate was founded in 1988, this group was originally was going to call themselves The Old Geezers, but nobody could figure out how to spell "geezer" so they decided to go with The Grumpy Old Men (and women at times). Since then, it has been shortened to "The Grumpies". Don't let the name fool you, this regular and dedicated group of volunteers is actually made of up of some of the sweetest men and women you'll ever meet. This group consistently works alongside our construction manager during the week and accompanies him from build to build. Most have some previous construction experience, but it is not required to join this hardworking crew.
If interested in becoming on of our "Grumpies", please call our volunteer coordinator, Heidi Mitchell, at 812-235-5914.
The Construction Site
Volunteering on our construction site is one of the best ways to gain hands on experience with Habitat for Humanity. We typically build two new houses a year and perform critical repairs on four houses a year; therefore, opportunities to volunteer during a build are abundant! No experience is necessary, just a will to learn and a positive attitude. Volunteering on our construction site is also unique in that many volunteers are learning house building skills right alongside our homeowners.
You can volunteer individually whenever you please, or call ahead to make group arrangements. If interested in scheduling a group volunteer day, please call our volunteer coordinator, Heidi Mitchell, at 812-235-5914.
We understand that construction is not for everyone; however that shouldn't mean you can't find your niche within our organization. There is role for everybody that wants to help whether that be through advocacy efforts, special events and fundraising, meal prepping or working directly with our homeowners. It takes much more than a hammer and nails to build a house, so we offer a variety of ways to get involved in the process.
