INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS

When you volunteer with us you will make a difference in the life of a local family. Check out the many volunteer opportunities available on our construction site and in our award-winning ReStore.  

 

Construction: 

Come build with us! We have volunteer opportunities Wednesday-Saturday in our Basalt Vista development, right behind Basalt High School.  No need for prior construction experience, if you have some that is fantastic, just a willing heart to support our mission of providing affordable housing.  

Note:

  • All volunteers will be asked to sign a volunteer waiver before they can work on any construction-related tasks. 
  • Youth ages 16-17 must have a parent fill out a waiver before they can work on the build site.
  • Due to safety concerns, youth younger than 16 are not allowed on the construction site while there is active construction (please call our volunteer coordinator if you are trying to schedule a youth group).
  • We cannot accept court-ordered volunteers on the build site, unless you have prior construction experience.

“Not only was the construction team patient and organized, but I left with a confidence in power tool operation I’d never had before.  The highlight of the day was meeting and working alongside the deserving family that would one day live in the home we were building together.” – Josh Ellis, Jobsite Volunteer
