Volunteering with Habitat
No Experience Required
Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Alabama is a grassroots, community-based organization that relies on local volunteers to build homes, community and hope in Southwest Alabama. There are many ways to become involved in Habitat's work.
Our construction days are Tuesday-Saturday, starting at 7:45-8AM with a mandatory safety meeting and typically ends at 3-4PM.
We encourage all our volunteers to watch the Safety Video, so they know what to expect when going on site. Volunteers will also need to fill out a waiver before going on site.
We ask all individual volunteers to please let us know at least 24 hours in advance, before going on site. Groups will have to schedule according to our availability.
