    Habitat For Humanity

    Get Involved!

    Habitat for Humanity of Evansville is a volunteer-driven organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with God and families in need.

    Though the vast majority of our volunteers have no construction experience or building skills, they are involved in most phases of construction. By working side-by-side with the family who will live in the house and pay the monthly mortgage, our volunteer's experience, for themselves, the joy created when a family is able to realize the dream of homeownership.

    Opportunities are available with General Construction, Office Support, Painting and others.
