Visit the facebook page for regular updates about construction work days.



Work takes place on Thursdays and Saturdays most weeks, with work starting at 9 am and continuing to middle or late afternoon. Saturday is the main work day. Contact if you want to be added to a volunteer email list.

When volunteering onsite for the first time, ask for construction supervisor Jeff Flam. Be sure to sign a volunteer waiver. Also, record your hours at the end of each day that you work.

Tools you could bring if you want to use your own: nail apron, hammer, tape measure, pencil, speed square, chalk line. All of these items are available at the site, but if you would prefer to use your own that would be fine. Any other tools you may need to use at the build site are available at the site. Do NOT bring pneumatic nailers to the site. They will be provided when applicable.
