Interested in supporting the Habitat for Humanity mission of providing affordable housing? If so, join us as a Warehouse volunteer! In this role, you can be a part of the mission of providing safe, decent, and affordable housing by help with warehouse inventory and bringing supplies to and from home construction worksites.

Volunteers are needed Thursday mornings at our warehouse in Madison. This role is most needed 8am-11:30am, but there is flexibility upon discussion with the warehouse supervisor. We are looking for someone who can volunteer weekly or every 2 weeks.

When transporting supplies to and from worksites (which may be as far as Sun Prairie or Stoughton), you will be driving a Habitat truck and will need a valid driver's license. Volunteers should be comfortable standing, squatting, bending, and walking on uneven terrain at the construction sites, as needed. This role will help manually load and unload trucks as needed, so volunteer should be comfortable lifting up to 50 lbs., with assistance provided as needed.

Volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Mission Statement

At Habitat for Humanity of Dane County, we offer a hand up, rather than a hand out. Through our volunteer network, generous donors and sales from our two Habitat ReStores, we’re helping families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance to build a better life through shelter. In Dane County alone, one in eight people lives in poverty, including 16 percent of all Dane County children. Habitat for Humanity’s Vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Our Mission: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Our Goal: Habitat for Humanity of Dane County will be a recognized leader, partner and catalyst for affordable housing solutions that positively impact families, communities and the environment. We are guided in everything we do by these fundamental values: Building communities and families Increasing sustainability Building efficiencies through partnerships

Description

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the principle that safe and affordable homeownership empowers people to reach their full potential. Our goal is to help families achieve and maintain sustainable housing. Through volunteer labor and donations of both money and materials, we build affordable homes for families as well as help low-income families make repairs on their current homes.

A home provides stability for families and children, as well as a sense of dignity and pride. Surveys show that children who grow up in a home are healthier, do better in school and will have better job prospects. Stable housing leads to safer, healthier and stronger communities.

Habitat does not give away homes or home repairs. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest their sweat equity into building their Habitat home and the homes of others. Each family must also attend educational courses on home maintenance, landscaping, budgeting and insurance.

The combination of low construction expenses, volunteer labor and a low to no-interest mortgages makes these homes affordable. Including property taxes and insurance, the Habitat homeowner’s monthly mortgage payment is no more than 30 percent of their gross income.
