General Information


The excitement is building! But in Habitat for Humanity, we don't just build houses. We also build friendships, share our talents, learn new skills, and touch the lives of our partner families forever. Join us as we work together to eliminate poverty housing in Dearborn and Ohio Counties, one home at a time.


Habitat for Humanity offers the following volunteer opportunities in Dearborn and Ohio Counties. For more information, call our Volunteer Coordinator, Charlie White, at 812-438-2691.

    • Construction volunteers (all skill levels) for framing, wiring, plumbing, site clean-up, and other general building tasks. Come and lead a crew or learn a new skill, and make a new friend in the process! When a home is under construction, work sessions take place on Saturday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and lunch is usually provided. Call the office for the dates and location of Saturday construction sessions, or e-mail rivercityrick@earthlink.net for information on weekday work sessions.
    • Family advocates to mentor partner families. Assist family members with tracking their sweat equity hours and help them plan for their new home.

Habitat also needs volunteers for many other tasks. If you have time and skills you'd like to share, call our office for more information.
