Volunteer and Make a Difference in Our Community

Are you wanting to get involved and improve your community? Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah has plenty of volunteer opportunities for you! In fact, volunteers are the heart of our organization. Hundreds lend a hand to HFHSWU each year to build and rehabilitate homes, bringing people together to ensure everyone can live in safe, decent and affordable housing. Volunteering with Habitat is a way to help low income families get a feeling of belonging in the community and a sense of pride in their homes.

 

Volunteers are needed to build Habitat homes, rehab a home through the “A Brush With Kindness” program or to work in the ReStore.  You don’t need to be a master carpenter or a landscape artist to help on a Habitat project. There’s always work to be done to help others in need.
