Benton Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization. In 2012, we had over 36,000 volunteer hours. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build decent, affordable houses in partnership with families in need. We are always looking for volunteers for our home construction. Currently, we are building two homes at 5th and B. St. in Corvallis. No experience necessary! Come swing a hammer or a shovel and build hope in our community. We build Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9am-3pm.
Home Repair Initiative
In addition to these two homes, we also have Home Repair Initiative (HRI) Projects occurring throughout the year. The HRI program assists low-income homeowners with small repair projects. Homeowners must meet requirements for income, sweat equity, and need. Through HRI, we can help families stay in their home longer, live healthier, safer conditions, and improve the value of their home. We are always looking for volunteers for our various HRI projects throughout the year.
The ReStore is in need of volunteers in order to keep up our vital operations. From working as a cashier to accepting donations, people find the ReStore a fun place to work (and there is always plenty of work). The ReStore is also a good option for large groups (over 12) and for children under 16. Since the proceeds from the sales fund the building of one Habitat home each year, while also keeping tons of materials from landfills, these volunteers make a big difference in the community.
