This is a copy of the Liability Waiver that all volunteers will agree to and sign electronically each time they sign up for a volunteer shift.

We would love to hear about your volunteer experience so that we can continue to improve! Thank you in advance for your feedback!

Weekly emails with our upcoming construction schedule dates will be conveniently delivered to your inbox each Friday afternoon, during our build season. We’d love to have you sign up for the build projects that interest you and the dates that work in your calendar.

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHFH) utilizes volunteers (both individuals and groups) to construct homes, work in the ReStore, help plan events, serve on committees/Board of Directors, and more. Volunteers are vital to our mission, helping us keep prices low and providing consistent operations across our entire organization. Volunteering allows you to have fun and make a difference while giving you the flexibility to choose your own schedule. You can work as little as a couple hours/month or as much as several times/week. Whether you are part of a church group, a school club, a corporate organization, or just an individual looking to gain volunteer experience, we’re always looking for volunteers.

No experience required!

No experience is needed to help build homes – only a desire to make a difference in our community. Our friendly and knowledgeable crew leaders will be there to help and answer questions every step of the way. So whether this is your first time lifting a hammer, or you are a construction professional, we would appreciate your help on a build site!

Parking on build sites:

We kindly ask that you try to carpool with your group members, as our parking is limited. Please do not park in front of mailboxes and try to spread your vehicles out along the road so neighbors still have some street parking available. Thanks for helping us be good neighbors!

(Pay attention to the “no parking on ___ day” signs to avoid parking tickets.)

When you have arrived on the build site, we ask you do the following things:
  • Sign in with the volunteer coordinator or construction manager. Don’t forget to sign out when you leave!
  • Listen carefully to the site supervisor’s safety talk and projects for the day.
  • Sign a paper waiver if you didn’t do this online.
  • Make sure you have the proper safety gear for the day (closed toed shoes, safety glasses, ear plugs, etc.)
