Volunteer

 

The success of Habitat for Humanity Kingston & Frontenac relies on the contributions of its many wonderful volunteers. We are grateful to the many people, businesses, groups, donors, suppliers, fundraisers, and builders who support us. Building homes requires work and commitment throughout the year. Together we have made an impact on many lives and will continue to do so with all of your help.

If you are interested in volunteering with us there are three main areas: Builds, Committees and the ReStore.

Build Crew

We work with hundreds of volunteers over a build season and many of them are beginners. How do we do it?

We have a core group of skilled volunteers who come out daily. Our construction staff divides volunteers into small teams to do a variety of tasks. All volunteers on site are led and supervised by our staff throughout the day. Because there is a wide range of skills represented in our volunteers, teams consist of experienced and less experienced people. Tasks designated are both appropriate and challenging to the skill level of each volunteer.

Volunteers are encouraged to share with us any personal limitations they have so that we can give them safe and comfortable tasks to do. For example: fear of heights, heavy lifting, etc. Safety is top priority on the job site and every volunteer must participate in our safety orientation before working. The orientation is done on site the morning of the volunteer shift.

To learn more about our upcoming builds check out the Builds & Projects section of the site.
