No experience or tools needed. Our construction team are trained professionals who will walk you through your assigned tasks while volunteering. We provide all tools, work gloves, and safety equipment; but if you have your favorites, you can bring them.
Be flexible and prepared to work. In addition to house construction, our construction volunteers also participate in shed building, landscaping, neighborhood revitalization, and more. We ask volunteers to be flexible and prepared for a good day's work, no matter the task.
Upon arriving, please sign-in! Signing in is necessary to be covered by our secondary insurance, to confirm volunteer hours, and for us to send you a thank you!
Attire: Dress for the weather, plan to work outside, and expect to get dirty! We recommend hard-soled work shoes or hiking boots, old work clothes, and dressing in layers. No sandals or flip-flops, you will be sent home. We also recommend a hat or sunscreen for hot weather, and hand sanitizer or baby wipes for lunch.
On-site amenities: Drinking water is available but please help us save money and reduce waste by bringing your own reusable water bottle. Portable toilets are available on our construction sites. On-street parking can usually be found within a block or two, but if you are volunteering with a group, please consider carpooling.
• Construction volunteers must be at least 16 years old. 16 and 17 year old volunteers must have a parent or guardian's consent: Youth Permission Form is here.
• Youth Permission form can be filled out and brought out on the build day, or sent to our office before the build day (contact info below).
• By volunteering with us, you acknowledge that we carry secondary insurance. This means that in the case of an accident or injury, your insurance is primary, and our insurance will generally cover any additional costs.
• By volunteering with us, you consent to and authorize the use and reproduction by Flower City Habitat for Humanity of any and all photographs and any other audiovisual materials taken of yourself for promotional printed material, educational activities, exhibitions or for any other use for the benefit of the program.

Campaign to Support Flower City Habitat for Humanity
People in our community, and all over the world, partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
