Organizations Sponsor

Every year, businesses sponsor a day during She Nailed It to send their employees to a Habitat construction site. It is a great team-building event that benefits a local family and the local community.

Volunteer FAQs:

What if bad weather is in the forecast?
Depending on the stage of construction, we may or may not be able to work while it is raining. We will make all weather-related decisions by 8pm the night before your scheduled day and let you know via email. We will offer rain dates to reschedule.

Do I need construction experience to volunteer with Habitat?
No experience required! Our volunteers range from those who have never swung a hammer to professional carpenters. All builds are led by experienced and trained site supervisors who will teach you everything you need to know.
