Weekly Volunteer Shop Hours:

Please see our calendar for confirmed weekly hours.  Typical shop hours are:  Tuesday 6:30 – 10, Thursday 3 – 7, Saturday 11 – 3, Sunday 3 – 7.

We work with volunteers at all skill levels, so don’t hesitate to volunteer simply because you lack construction experience. The most important qualification we look for is a willingness to learn, to take instructions from the Shop Manager and to follow all shop safety procedures.

Please come ready to work, dressed in work clothes that can get dirty or smeared with paint.  You can just show up at the shop – 304 N 3rd St.

    Hi there! I just stumbled upon your project this morning after a week of building with Habitat for Humanity in Mississippi. While there & in surrounding states, the rate of homeless really got to me. While I love Habitat, there’s just some people that even we can’t help. I love your creative ideas, but I live in Illinois (for now–soon to live in New Orleans) and I don’t have a very disposable income as far as donations. I was wondering if there’s anything I could do to help from far away? or if you had any affiliates in other states?

    Thank you, I look forward to speaking with you more in detail
