Get Involved in Seneca Habitat

Involved workersSeneca Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization. 

In fact, we have only one paid employee! 

The majority of our work is accomplished by community members--people like you.

There are lots of ways to help out, and only some of them involve whacking things with a hammer.  While our insurance agents tell us that building-site volunteers must be at least 16 years old, there is no maximum age limit.  You'll find men and women of all ages and backgrounds working side by side with qualified Habitat Partner Families.

Read on for ideas about how you can aid Seneca Habitat for Humanity in its mission.

 Help Build Houses

building from aboveHabitat wouldn't be Habitat without the houses, and every Saturday is building day.  Habitat builders start work at 9 a.m. and finish up by 4 p.m. Lunch is provided (see below). 

Seneca Habitat boasts a dedicated core of seasoned construction professionals who ensure the high quality our homes are known for. 

Don't know a skill saw from a reciprocating saw?  Don't worry--the experienced Habitat builders are happy to teach you anything you'll need to know.  

If you would like to volunteer, please complete the volunteer information and waiver of liability forms to the right, send them into the Habitat office, and one of our dedicated volunteers will contact you shortly.

Make Lunch for Hungry Workers

Building Habitat houses builds an appetite, so Seneca Habitat provides lunch to everyone helping on Saturdays.  Area churches, businesses, organizations and individuals donate lunch.  If you or your group would like to help with lunch, please let us know!

Seneca Habitat wants to be a good neighbor. We can use volunteers to help with building-site cleanup, landscaping and mowing.

We of course need and appreciate monetary donations (see the box at right for details on donating to Seneca Habitat), but there are other kinds of donations besides cash.
