Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity

Get in on the Ground Floor as a Habitat Volunteer

Submitted by Robin Hartmann, Executive Director, Umpqua Valley Habitat for Humanity

How do you build a house? It’s easy - one board at a time. That’s especially true when it’s being done by a crew of dedicated volunteers under the patient guidance of our Umpqua Valley Habitat construction manager.


With a new year beginning, Habitat is readying to build at 668 W Broccoli Street in Roseburg, Oregon, and we welcome additional helping hands!   Whether you are new to construction or an old hand, there is a way for you to contribute on the jobsite or by helping feed our hungry crew at lunchtime.  In fact, Habitat also needs help throughout the week to pick up materials and with other simple tasks.


We will be building throughout 2019 every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and also the first and third Saturdays each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.   Currently, we have our building plans, permits and are preparing for demolition of the small dilapidated structure on the property.  Our next step is site prep, foundation and then the fun part – joists, floors and framing the walls.


As the saying goes, “Many hands make light work.”  Please give us a call if you want to get outdoors in 2019, enjoy the uplifting company of other volunteers and work alongside our future homeowner to help build a brighter future.
