Here are some areas in which help is needed.
Construction Volunteers: Our teams build and repair homes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm. We are actively seeking folks who can commit to volunteering on our new construction job sites one, two, or three days a week to join our crew of superstar “Regulars.”
Habitat ReStore Volunteers: Volunteers keep our Habitat ReStore humming. Volunteers can help on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. We have flexible shifts available on our online calendar.
Photographers, Writers, & Graphic Designers: We need good photographers to take high-resolution photos at Habitat events, construction sites, and the Habitat ReStore. The photos are used in publications and social media. We also have opportunities for writers and graphic designers to help with our communications.
Special Events: Help prepare and present special events with Habitat. This includes our anniversary celebration, receptions, home dedications, fundraisers, and outreach events.
Boards & Committees: Interested in getting more involved in creating affordable housing in Kalamazoo? We often need dedicated volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors and Board Committees. Attendance is required at once- or twice-monthly meetings, depending on the role.
