Make an Impact in Your Community
Thank you for your interest in becoming a construction volunteer.
We could not help local families realize their dream of homeownership without the help of dedicated volunteers.
Roughly 80% of the labor performed on a Habitat house is completed by construction volunteers. In a given year, that means 300 – 400 volunteers come out to help build houses for local families in need of safe, decent, affordable homes. So when we say “We couldn’t do this without you!” – we mean it!
Currently, we are building a two-phase, 32 home community on Hilton Head off Marshland Road called The Glen.
