Volunteer to Build with Habitat of Elkhart County
Volunteer safety is important to us. With the recent news of COVID 19, we’d like to remind all volunteers of basic precautionary measures you can take — at home or on-site. Download this important information from The World Health Organization.
Construction volunteers work side-by-side with Habitat for Humanity staff, partner family homebuyers, donors, and other volunteers to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
We always need individuals, corporate groups, faith groups, student groups – anyone & everyone wanting to make a difference with our families to help volunteer at our construction sites. No previous experience is necessary and all necessary tools are provided. We will provide on-site training for the jobs at hand and will find a job that suits your needs. If you would like to contribute to our build sites, but do not want to lift a hammer, we also need volunteer groups
to provide meals for our construction crews.
All volunteers must fill out a waiver form before volunteering with Habitat. Volunteers must be 16 or older; anyone younger than 18 needs a parent signature on our minor waiver form and must have a printed out waiver. 18+ may fill out the on-line waiver form to the right.
We build Wednesday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 3 pm. If you have any questions or want to sign up to volunteer, sign up on-line with the button to the right, or call our office at (574) 533-6109.

Build With Us
A Panel Build is a four hour team building event with Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County, where your team builds the panel walls to a Habitat home with the direction of our construction and volunteer staff - at your location!
A Panel Build is also an opportunity to promote your company, church or organization. Our Development Director will work with your organization to craft media releases and use our social media to promote your involvement with us.
Panel Build testimonial from Scott Nelson, President of Dometic Americus.
“Giving back to the community is very important to Dometic. After experiencing the panel build last year and seeing the results of the hard work put in, we are ecstatic to participate again this year and help change another family’s life.”
We welcome all faith beliefs as volunteers! If you are interested in getting your faith organization involved in a build or service project, please fill out the contact form so that our Volunteer Coordinator can contact you as soon as possible.
Habitat for Humanity is a Christian based organization, but all beliefs are accepted at all of our volunteering opportunities.
