Happy Construction Volunteers!

Every hand can make a difference!

Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area is looking for volunteers for our construction sites!

Whether you’re a master carpenter or have never picked up a hammer, a serving heart is all that is required. We build year-round. Opportunities are regularly available on Wednesday-Saturday. Work us into your schedule twice a week or once a month - whatever works for you!

Individual hours are flexible with volunteers leaving sooner or later depending on the day. However, we ask that all volunteers arrive by 8:00 am.

You must be 18 years or older to volunteer on the construction site or 16 years or older accompanied by a legal guardian.

Mission Statement

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity-La Crosse Area brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Description

Our Vision

We believe that decent, affordable housing is a matter of conscience; we realize that there are people in our community who are living in inadequate conditions and that joining together we can provide a hand up - not a hand out.

We envision that the families with which we partner will have pride in ownership, learn skills that will help them maintain their home, and be a model to others in the community. Most of all it will give those in need hope and encouragement to see that decent affordable homes are a possibility for them.

For many of the affluent it will be an eye-opening experience to see what homes and conditions are like for many of the poor. Many of the stereotypes that the affluent have harbored will be dispelled as they get to know personally persons of different socio-economic, ethnic, or religious backgrounds. They will find that we all share a common humanity, with similar frailties, strengths and aspirations. We think that the affluent might well be humbled by the endurance, optimism, courage, and resourcefulness of the poor as they struggle against great odds to make ends meet for themselves and their families.

And for those who stand by and watch this whole process and interaction, we hope they will be pleasantly surprised and do some serious thinking about the disparity between the affluent and poor.
