Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 7 people are interested

Our volunteers do most of the work of building the Habitat homes. We encourage volunteers of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. We welcome individual volunteers as well businesses, churches, and civic groups.

Volunteering on a Habitat home can be a great team building or fellowship activity. Our construction team is ready to take beginners and turn them into competent builders! Our hope is that you like it so much that you’d be a 1 day week regular.

While the work we do can change by day here are a few examples of the type of task you might find on the work site.

  • Framing and Siding
  • General/Finish Carpentry
  • Painting
  • and much more!

So if you're ready, come help us build houses that will turn into homes. All skill levels are welcome. Whether you want to learn new skills or pass along years of knowledge, come alongside others who want to make a significant positive impact in the lives of families.

Visit us at our website's volunteer page @ www.hfhwhatcom.org and join us in building healthy neighborhoods that create equity and prosperity for everyone. It takes 24 hours to process your volunteer registration.

Current COVID-19 CDC guidelines are being practiced.

Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County works in partnership with God and the people of our community to provide simple, decent housing for God's people in need by building or renovating houses so that there are affordable homes in which families can live and grow into all that God intended.

Description

Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County is a locally governed, self-sustaining affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. We are a non-profit organization committed to overcoming substandard housing through the building of affordable, decent homes with families.

We build homes with families in need of safe, decent, affordable housing.

Habitat in your community and around the world have built over half a million homes. Since we have been operating in Whatcom County, beginning in 1988, we’ve completed 40 homes and housed more than 150 Whatcom County residents.

Habitat works in partnership with families in need of decent, affordable housing and community volunteers, businesses, churches and other civic organizations. We repair, build, and sell good, affordable homes so that families can build a strong foundation for the future.

We provide home building, and mortgage financing for residents earning less than 60% of the area median income. We refer families who do not meet our qualifications to other local resources. Also we offer affordable home furnishings, appliances, and building materials to the public at the Habitat Store as a service to our community and to offset our operational costs.
