Volunteer Programs

Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio offers multiple avenues for getting involved including some of these Habitat International volunteer programs!

 

Home Repair

Habitat for Humanity–MidOhio is continuing its commitment to the communities we serve by making affordable home repair accessible to our neighbors in need. Enabling current homeowners and their families to continue living in and maintaining a safe, decent, and affordable place to live is key to the longevity and success of both the family and the neighborhood in which they reside. Habitat MidOhio has expanded its Repair Program and is currently seeking home repair volunteers. Our repair volunteers help with projects involving exterior painting, siding, porch/stair repair, and water damage, just to name a few. No prior experience is required, and both individual and group opportunities are available. For more information about becoming a Repair Program volunteer, please contact Rachel Hardin.

 

 

Women Build

The Women Build program helps Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) build more homes by involving more women in building homes and communities. Women represent a tremendous, often untapped, volunteer pool, and Women Build projects provide an opportunity for them to learn construction skills through training opportunities and by working on Women Build houses with crews predominantly comprised of women.

Habitat MidOhio is planning to start construction on our 13th Women Build house in September 2019! If you’d like to be added to the interest list for updates on the project, please contact Rachel Hardin. To view and register for volunteer opportunities, please visit our volunteer website. For more information about the program, visit the Women Build Facebook page.

 

 

Faith Relations

IMG_8640-240x180A partnership with Habitat MidOhio can offer your congregation a unique opportunity in the community. We enable your congregation to grow in a tangible way- by putting it’s faith into action. Habitat’s holistic approach to homeownership and home repair provides an opportunity to impact not only a worthy family in need, but the entire community. Your congregation can partner with Habitat MidOhio in a number of ways: building on site, working on a repair, volunteering on a committee, working in Habitat’s ReStore, joining a faith coalition and assisting in sponsorship.

Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio has joined with nearly 140 area congregations who have seen partnership with Habitat as an important part of their putting faith into action in the community. Join with us today as we partner towards the goal of providing safe, decent and affordable housing to everyone in our community.
