Welcome and thank you for your interest in volunteering!
Please note the information and form linked below are for volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth, MA. We work in the towns of Plymouth, Carver, Middleboro, Kingston, Lakeville and Plympton.
Volunteering with Habitat is an experience you’ll never forget. Our volunteer opportunities don’t require special skills or construction experience, just a readiness to pitch in and help. Some Habitat volunteers build houses*, while others work with families, reach out to sponsors or serve on a variety of planning committees. *Our home construction work will be done on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
We are excited to announce an important transition regarding our volunteer management system. As we continue to evolve and enhance our operations, we will be using Bloomerang Volunteer, a comprehensive and efficient volunteer management platform. This transition will streamline our volunteer engagement process and provide a more user-friendly experience for both our volunteers and staff.
We understand that change can be challenging, but we are confident that this transition will ultimately improve the volunteer experience and make it easier for you to continue supporting our cause. To make the switch to Bloomberg Volunteer, click on the button below and hit sign up for this organization. Once you have signed up for our organization, you can access Bloomerang Volunteer from the web, or on the App Store or Google Play. This capability will allow you to manage your volunteer opportunities and shifts directly from your phone!
Join us, and work alongside others who've committed themselves to action. Here are just a few of the rewards of volunteering with Habitat:
- Enjoy the personal satisfaction of helping a family build a brighter future
- Meet new people -- our volunteers, from a variety of backgrounds, all share a common desire to give back
- Gain new skills that you can use in your own home
- Build alongside the future homeowners who are eager to start a new chapter
We are grateful to each and every volunteer for any amount of time they can offer. We love to have new faces join our volunteer team and welcome you to give it a try or ask questions. Every action truly does help build a family's future.
Nothing builds cohesion like building a Habitat home together. Manage an existing group or start a new one—our projects involve companies, service clubs, professional associations, church groups and many other kinds of organizations. Read more about our Team Build program.
We appreciate all of our volunteers and do our best to make sure everyone has a fantastic build day. Part of having a great build day is safety. Due to the hazards of construction work, there are some limitations on what volunteers under 18 may do.
Ages 15 and Under
Minors 15 and under are not allowed on site unless it is to bring food and drinks during the lunch break when there is no active construction.
Minors 16–17 are allowed to participate in construction work, but are prohibited from using power tools; being on ladders, scaffolding, or walk boards more than 4’ higher than surrounding area; being on platforms or decks without hand or guard rails when more than 4’ above surrounding area; and being on a roof or participating in roofing. Minor groups participating on a build site must have adult supervision. All minors must complete a liability waiver and have it signed by their parent or guardian.
Current Home Build Underway!
Our current build site is located at 47 Indian Avenue in Plymouth. An existing cottage will be rehabbed and expanded upon with a two-story addition to create a modest 3-bedroom home in a quiet residential neighborhood. With professional excavation and foundation work needed first, we are scheduling volunteer shifts starting in December 2023 (subject to change).
Not interested in construction but still want to help? No problem! Check out our non-construction volunteer roles here.
