ABWK VOLUNTEERS

Our exterior home preservation program uses unpaid volunteers to help local low-income families. Painting, minor home repairs, landscaping, cleanup projects, and decking and ramps are some of the affordable exterior work we do. We provide assistance to our families so that they are able to live in safe, decent homes for years to come.

BUILDING VOLUNTEERS

Volunteering on a build site is a fun, hands-on opportunity. Therefore, you can work on a home alongside the future Habitat homeowners. Our build site volunteers do many projects, e.g. framing and raising walls, hanging drywall, painting, etc. As a matter of fact, previous construction experience is not required for some projects.

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 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). The donation is tax-deductible. It also helps with the cost of building materials. A team of up to 12 volunteers can work on the site to raise walls, swing hammers, hang drywall and more. Your company helps us continue to build homes and serve families. 

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, please contact us. Make sure to 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, Dan Wilson.

LABOR SERVICES AND MATERIALS

Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties relies on the generosity of our community and the towns and cities we serve to achieve our mission. Individuals and businesses make a huge impact on the construction of our homes through the donations of goods and services.

Building materials needed for our Habitat Homes include: lumber, sheetrock, insulation, windows, doors, cabinets, roofing, carpeting, paint, electrical, plumbing, driveway, foundation, landscaping, and more.

Professional skills in areas such as excavation, electrical, plumbing, and construction can also make a great impact! We are always grateful for the generosity of professionals who give up their time for a great cause!
