Community & Faith Group Volunteering
Volunteer in your community
We invite Faith groups, non-profit groups and community organizations to come build simple, decent, and affordable homes for Toronto families living in need.
Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area is committed to helping hardworking families living in substandard housing. The Habitat Homeownership program is for families looking to improve their lives through commitment and partnership. We rely on group volunteers to help accomplish our mission. Your group can have a direct hand in helping build a home and provide a lasting contribution to the lives of the families that will eventually move into their Habitat home and to the community.
All Habitat for Humanity GTA relies on the generosity of our supporters to fund the construction of our homes. We encourage volunteer groups to set a fundraising goal of $100 per person and will provide your team with exclusive registration links, a dedicated volunteer coordinator on the day, volunteer t-shirts, pizza lunch, and a digital photo album of your experience if you reach a fundrasiging goal of $1000 for a group of up to 10, or $2000 for a group of up to 20.
Please note that all volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to build with us.
How Team Builds Work
- A contact at your organization arranges a day for 5 - 50 participants to build on our site. Once your day is scheduled, you will receive a confirmation package with all the information you will need for your build.
- On the day of your build, your group arrives at the site at 8:00am, submits their waivers, completes the registration process and will receive CSA approved steel-toe boots and hard hats. At this time, your group will also receive a short safety training session and be led in the Habitat Cheer
- Next, your team will be split into smaller groups and led through projects by Crew Leaders who are experienced construction volunteers.
- Your team will spend the day learning and performing various construction tasks to help us build a house.
- The build day ends at 4:00pm
