About this opportunity

Volunteer and change someone’s life — it could be yours
Habitat Invercargill is unique and blessed to have a mission where our supporters can engage in direct and meaningful ways. Volunteering on a construction site is one of them. Anyone who can swing a hammer or set a block in place is welcome to the work of Habitat for Humanity Invercargill.

Habitat sets the stage for families and volunteers to come together. A family partners with Habitat and contributes their "sweat equity" or their own labour. A volunteer offers them a hand up, providing the support and the "muscle" that often means homes can be built at considerably lower costs. At a Habitat build site, relationships are formed and friends are made.
