Our build site can use anywhere from 4 – 20 volunteers; however, we will accommodate more on occasion. When possible we ask larger groups to cover several days vs. one very large day. Safety is a key concern; thus all participants are required to view a brief safety video. Additional waivers are available to sign prior to participation or at the job site. Only minors aged 16 + may participate on the job site and require parental/guardian signatures on a waiver.

Home Sponsorship Opportunities

Home sponsorship provides the core funding for our mission. We work with individuals, corporations, faith groups and others to fund the expenses to build simple, decent and energy efficient homes through our home sponsorship program. Volunteers build homes with Habitat construction staff guidance in La Plata County.

For out-of-state or non-resident groups, please check out our wonderful community, an ideal location for a corporate or business convention/workshop!

This memorable day of building is perfect for departmental outings, team training and convention groups.
