Thanks to donors like you, we are helping provide more families in need warm, safe and stable homes in the Weber and Davis Counties. We can only build with your support. We need your help.
Prior to volunteering on the build site or at the ReStore, please read our Safety Guidelines and fill out our Safety Waiver and bring it to the site. Please keep in mind that build days may be canceled due to severe weather, or unforeseeable circumstances. We make an effort to reschedule groups, if possible and appreciate your patience and flexibility!
To sign up as a volunteer, you can email Neyla Hadfield at email@example.com.
Our exterior home preservation program uses volunteers to help perform affordable exterior work for local low-income families. We may need your help for painting, minor home repairs, landscaping, cleanup projects, decking and ramps, and so much more. We provide assistance to our families so that they are able to live in safe, decent homes for years to come. Contact Neyla Hadfield to sign up as a volunteer.
Volunteering on a build site is a fun, hands-on opportunity that allows you to work on a home alongside the future Habitat homeowners. Our build site volunteers do everything from framing and raising walls to hanging drywall and painting. Previous construction experience is not required.
Email Neyla Hadfield, the Volunteer Coordinator, to sign up as a volunteer to start building lives. Must be 16 years and older to help. However, there may be specific projects we will allow younger persons to help with.
If you are someone with experience in building homes, you may be referred to Rick Boman, our Construction Coordinator.
CORPORATE TEAM BUILD DAYS
A Team Build Day gives Habitat and your company an opportunity to partner in a truly significant and meaningful way. Through this program, companies provide a financial donation ($1,500 for corporate group/team build days and a suggested $750-$1,000 donation for civic, church and school groups) and send a team of up to 12 volunteers to our work site to raise walls, swing hammers, hang drywall and more. By contributing this tax-deductible donation, your company helps share with us the cost of building materials and supervision, enabling us to continue to build homes and serve families. Companies are welcome to give more if they are able, and we thank you for keeping Habitat in mind while pursuing your charitable giving goals. For more information, please contact the main office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WOMEN BUILD DAYS
“Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities“.
Women Build groups have the opportunity to learn how to build and construct a home on our Habitat lots. We will need your help along with other volunteers to build two new Habitat Homes in Ogden, UT. There is no experience needed, as our construction managers and professionals will work alongside you to help build. If you have a group of women that wish to make a difference and help with our ABWK projects or Housing projects, please contact us at email@example.com and sign up for our volunteer email list.
The goal of Women build is to “empower women to help families build strength, stability, and independence“.
VETERAN BUILD DAYS
We are proud to support our veterans who have served our country. Currently, one of Habitat Families is Travis Parsons, a retired vet. Hill AirForce Base has been a dedicated partner with Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties. If you are military personnel and wish to help a fellow veteran with building a Habitat Home, please contact the HAFB Representative and schedule a group.

Finding affordable land to build on is one of our greatest challenges. By making a charitable donation of land, you will help us by eliminating what is often one of the most expensive aspects of building a home. This will allow us to build more homes for deserving families. Another option is to sell a building site to Habitat at a reduced price. A charitable contribution deduction may be available in this situation, so please check with your accountant. If you are interested in donating land, please call our office or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
