Construction

Construction Volunteers are needed! Hundreds of volunteers come together each year to help build homes nail by nail, and board by board. No construction experience is necessary and volunteers of all skill levels are welcome. Direction and instruction is provided by experienced Habitat Choptank Construction Supervisors and Crew Chiefs. Volunteers may participate as often or as little as they choose; the minimum length of commitment is one shift on a single day. Habitat Choptank’s mission to create opportunities for low income families to live in decent, affordable, and durable shelter is achieved by volunteers who help build or renovate homes.

The most visible and most popular of Habitat Choptank’s volunteer opportunities is construction. As Habitat Choptank is a home builder, the largest need is for Construction Volunteers. Construction Volunteers work on nearly every aspect of home building undertaking dozens of tasks such as flooring, painting, tiling, siding, insulating, framing, landscaping, renovating, and weatherization.

About Habitat for Humanity Choptank

Location:

29350 Maple Avenue Unit 1, Trappe, MD 21673, US

Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity Choptank works in partnership with God and all people to transform communities and the lives of qualifying families in Dorchester and Talbot Counties by building simple, decent and affordable homes.

Description

Since its founding in 1992, Habitat Choptank has made homeownership a reality for 57 families. Relying on volunteers, financial donations, and material contributions, each Habitat home is the result of a unique partnership among a deserving family, dedicated volunteers, community partners, and inspired donors. While Habitat for Humanity affiliates are known for their construction of simple, decent and affordable homes, that vision has grown to include the construction of sustainable energy efficient homes.

As a nonprofit organization, Habitat Choptank strives to not only build homes but also to collaborate with all people interested in the quality of life in the two county region through the creation of affordable housing opportunities. Talbot and Dorchester counties are home to many low income working families who are unable to buy a home due to the high land and construction costs, as well as a shortage of affordable housing. Habitat Choptank works in partnership with low income families to provide housing opportunities to end the cycle of poverty.

Habitat for Humanity affiliates work locally in communities to select and support homeowners, organize volunteers and coordinate house building and repair. Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to repay a mortgage and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat. Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity or any other characteristic.
