About

Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity will be building for the first time in its 30 Years up in the Salisbury community. after delivering 92 homeownership opportunities to families within Haverhill, Lawrence and Methuen - we are excited to be bringing homeownership opportunities to deserving families within the northern part of our footprint of service.

We will start this project fall of 2017 - a two family side-by-side home for two families. Traditionally it takes about 18 months to complete a build. As this is our first time building up in this area we are no gathering interest from the surrounding community to build a roaster of volunteers who will come out and build with us on: Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

We are looking for skilled and non-skilled volunteers. For skilled - construction and subcontracting trade volunteers (electric, plumbing and roofing) - these volunteers traditionally come out to support installing the electric or plumbing after pulling permits, or help us to oversee volunteers with their supervision. Our skilled construction volunteers are usually individuals who have some basic skills of home repair and feel comfortable with tools and help supervisor non-skilled volunteers. We welcome volunteers with no skills - all that is required is an eagerness to learn and participate. You can work with us for one day or set a regular schedule to come out and support the effort for the entire build. We also schedule company and organizational build days where corporations and community groups - including local faith communities bring out a build team of up to 20 volunteers, and spend a day working with us. Please contact us with your interest at volunteer@merrimackvalleyhabitat.org or call 978-681-8858
