There are three types of additional volunteer opportunities offered at Habitat for Humanity of Berks County.


1. Construction Volunteers

Habitat for Humanity of Berks County construction volunteers are the people who will help guide and teach you the basics on the job site. There is a group of regular volunteers who works on our houses 4-days a week. Additionally, supporters of Habitat, companies and other organizations send their employees to volunteer at our job sites as a team building exercise.
