Individuals

Individuals may call our Volunteer Coordinator or email admin@habitatlaplata.org for areas you may be interested in serving. Youth aged 14 – 18 years of age may work after school hours in our ReStore and require parental/guardian signatures on Waivers. Youth 16 – 18 years of age may work on a job site with a signature from a parent or guardian.

Are you retired looking for an opportunity to serve others on a weekly basis in the summer months? The Hammers Club is made up of dedicated retired/semi-retired individuals who come out each Wednesday to provide consistent support to our Construction Supervisor. The Hammer Club works between May and October during each year’s build. No skills required…learn as you go!

Hammers Club members carpool to the job site from Durango or meet up at the job site. Our first meeting will be in April to present the plans and introduce the Construction Supervisor, please leave contact information with our Volunteer Coordinator to be advised of the meeting time and location.

Already have a group—book club, bible study group—designate one day a week or once a month for your own Hammer Club Team! We don’t expect you every time, but the constancy is a great help to us!
