Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County. We welcome individuals and groups from all walks of earth to work toward providing families of Dutchess County with quality, affordable homeownership.

Without volunteers, there would be no Habitat!

There are plenty of ways for you to get involved. See different volunteer descriptions below.  While we welcome volunteers with construction skills, we don’t require previous experience. We provide all of the training needed for the day, all you need is your enthusiasm and energy to lend a helping hand.

For more information or any questions you may have feel free to email us at volunteers@habitatdutchess.org

Volunteers in homeownership are critical to recruit and assist families in their Habitat Partnership.  You can volunteer to help with outreach to spread the word in the community about this program or you can become a Habitat Coach. Habitat Coaches work with families who are Partners in the Homeownership program.  A coach is the communicator, guide, back up, friend that helps the family along during their process of sweat equity, class work and applying for a mortgage.  If you are interesting in helping with Homeownership please email Jen at: jennifer.radicone@habitatdutchess.org

Habitat Dutchess has many committees that you can join.  From Hospitality that provides lunches and other items to volunteers on a build site to our Site Selection Committee that helps us find and acquire properties, we are always looking for helping hands, and thoughtful minds to help us grow our organization.
