Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart and backbone of Habitat. Time and time again, our community has demonstrated its generosity through countless hours of volunteering. Through this collective effort, families have been able to move into their very own homes – Thank you to all of our dedicated past and current volunteers!

As for future volunteers, Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity is always seeking out passionate individuals and organizations to join us on our mission to create strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Volunteers of all personal backgrounds and skill levels are welcomed! You can complete our Volunteer Information Form online.

Current Volunteer Positions

We don't just build houses! There are a variety of volunteer opportunities vital to helping our organization run smoothly. Volunteers aren't limited to one area either. Our construction team can occasionally help out in the office, and vice versa. We want everyone to have a chance to get their hands dirty (or not) if they choose.
