Habitat Sarasota builds permanent, affordable homes in partnership with the community for income-qualified families. Habitat homebuyers provide a minimum of 300 hours toward "sweat equity" to help build their own home alongside volunteers. Their sweat equity, combined with the labor of volunteers, efficient building methods, modest house sizes, and no-profit loans results in an affordable mortgage.
Habitat Sarasota relies on hundreds of volunteers each year to support our mission. We welcome volunteers of all skill levels; no experience is required. Volunteers must be 16 years or older to volunteer with Habitat Sarasota.

We recommend long pants or jeans, but shorts are allowed.
We also recommend clothing that can be permanently stained.
We suggest volunteers wear sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat as there is often very little shade.
