Frequently Asked Questions

Do our Team Build members need prior construction experience?

No, just come as you are. We have jobs and tasks for all skill levels and abilities including construction, beautification, running errands and touch-ups.

Will we get to meet the future Habitat homeowner from our build project?

Habitat’s future homeowners have requirements to fulfill, which we call sweat equity. This includes construction on their home and the homes of others participating in Habitat’s homeownership program. It is possible you will get to work with the homeowners but not guaranteed.

How many people can join and how long will we work?

Groups can range from 5 to 25 based on the location and depth of the project.  Typical work days run from 8AM to 1PM.
