We will begin construction on a home in Fort Walton Beach in June. Please contact Melissa to get on the schedule if you are interested in construction volunteering. We build on Tuesday and Saturday mornings beginning at 8am.

Construction Volunteer

The construction job-site is our most popular volunteer opportunity. You do not have to have construction experience to join in to help. We currently build in Fort Walton Beach and Crestview two days a week, Tuesday and Saturday. Poor weather and non-delivery of supplies can postpone a workday.

Getting Started
All volunteers are required to fill out a Volunteer Application. The application needs to be faxed to our office at 850.315.0429 or can be brought with you to the job-site your first day out.

Scheduling Your Volunteer Date - volunteer@habitatfwb.org
For volunteering on a construction site you will need to contact our volunteer coordinator for availability, contacting via e-mail is preferred. Please provide the following information when contacting:

Number of individuals planning to volunteer
Point of contact name and phone number
Preferred service location (currently Fort Walton Beach)

When scheduling a group of volunteers please ensure that you have everyone on your team fill out a volunteer application. You will be supplied availability of dates, job-site location and directions.
