Volunteers are integral to the mission of Manchester Habitat. Volunteers serve on our board, perform the daily tasks to keep the organization running, participate in fundraising, and putting in the muscle for construction.
Hammer-swinging has emerged as the quintessential volunteer experience with us. Volunteers and partner families build all Habitat homes according to the highest standards. The main construction project is the weekly â€œSaturday Buildsâ€� where individuals and groups perform the labor on our current project houses. There are also theme-oriented opportunities for involvement such as the Women Build, a day dedicated to construction through the efforts of women.
Group Construction/Youth Groups
Manchester Habitat is always looking for volunteers, and group construction is a great way for clubs, business, and youth groups to give back to the community and build teamwork.
As many people know, for every person in the spotlight there are several more behind the scenes laying the groundwork that makes everything possible. Several committees, including the Board of Directors, are composed of volunteers and welcome the contributions of new members. We need volunteers to commit their time and expertise to make the organization run successfully.
Whether designing publications, entering data, folding newsletters, addressing envelopes, or filing sundry items, office volunteers provide vital assistance in making the management of Habitat programs effective. The tasks to be done are as varied as the organization is dynamic.
