We’re so pleased that you are interested in volunteering with us! Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and with your help we can build hope for more deserving families in Thurston County.
There are several ways for you to volunteer your time with us:
Volunteer on our Construction Site
SPS Habitat homes are built with 80% volunteer labor. We depend on individuals like you who are willing to come out and swing a hammer on the construction site to build homes and a lasting future for families in need. No construction experience is necessary. We provide you with all of the tools and training necessary on site. To learn more about how to get started click here.
Volunteer in our Habitat STORE
The Habitat Store sells building materials at a fraction of retail prices, making home improvements, renovations, or building upkeep more affordable. Proceeds from the store help fund the construction of SPS Habitat homes. Habitat Stores needs volunteers to help manage the store, assist customers and keep merchandise in order and stocked. If you like working with people and in fun environments, this will be a great experience for you. Sign-up to volunteer today!
Building dreams takes lots of behind-the-scenes work from dedicated volunteers, and there are a variety of ways to do this beyond the construction site. Consider joining one of our committees that help SPS Habitat serve the community, volunteer with our office team or at our Store! There are many opportunities for you to support our work!
SPS Habitat has a few specialty volunteer roles that make a major difference in our ability to carry out our mission. If you have any interest in the following areas, please let us know.
Translation Services: On-call volunteers who are fluent in Spanish are needed to translate documents and to translate during meetings and events.
Data Entry Specialists: Help in our Downtown Olympia office with data entry, filing, mailings, and other general office duties. Hours are flexible, but a weekly commitment is requested.
Event Support: We host and attend various community outreach and support programs throughout the year: We always appreciate an extra hand with set-up, registration, and event wrap-up.
