Volunteer

Come and be a part of our future!

Niagara Habitat is completely run by a team of volunteers.

There are a few ways to help:

  1. Help us build our next house.
    You don’t have to be an expert in construction – only the desire to see the outcome of what one day of labor will do – help a family put a roof over their heads and provide safe shelter for their children
  2. We have several committees that need support.Consider joining one of the following:
    • Family Selection/Nuturing – prospects, selects and educates prospective homeowners. Become a Mentor for a New Homeowner!
    • Fundraising/Publicity – Develops and executes much needed community awareness & fundraising activities to cover building costs. 
    • Building – Manages the operations and assists with the projects
    • Finance – Research and write grants, manage major donations and events
  3. Become a Board member
    We are seeking new board members who have a passion to make a difference in our community. If interested, we would be happy to discuss how you can help. Please contact Daleen Lewis  by email joangel418@aol.com
  4. Become an Intern
    • Our interns have helped with social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook.
    • They help develop and update the Niagara Habitat for Humanity Website
    • By volunteering and being present on the site, they get an all around perspective on the project and how important it is.
    • If interested in becoming an intern, please contact Elizabeth Diachun at ediachun@gmail.com
