CORE Construction Volunteers
If you are looking for an ongoing volunteer opportunity with Habitat, become a CORE Construction Volunteer.
CORE Construction Volunteers are a huge asset to the construction sites because they develop construction and leadership skills that are crucial to building. Volunteers commit to building 24 days a year, which is often enough that you become very familiar with what and how we build.
Why should you become a CORE Construction Volunteer?
- You'll get to work alongside great construction staff and learn more details of the build process.
- You'll get your own Habitat t-shirt.
- You get a golden ticket to volunteer happy hours during the year.
- It's a great way to meet new people!
For additional information and to apply to become a CORE Construction Volunteer, please email Katie Bonomo, Volunteer Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out this form:

Why Harry Volunteers
Harry is a long-time, regular construction volunteer who brings a wealth of knowledge and care to the construction sites. He’s worked on Habitat sites for the past 11 years and enjoys solving the puzzles of home building and repair.
Why does Harry volunteer? “It was kind of a selfish motive – “Volunteering makes me feel better intellectually,” says Harry, “It makes me feel like I’m not just sitting around wasting away. So I feel better physically too.”
Harry’s words of encouragement to interested volunteers are, “There is a great deal of reward in association to working with the families, meeting the families and helping to better the community – I’ve found that extremely rewarding.
Why Ziggy Volunteers
David “Ziggy” Ziegler, is one of the most dedicated volunteers at Habitat Metro Denver. He began volunteering with Habitat Metro Denver back in 1999 with the Holy Hammers. “I enjoyed it so much that I started to volunteer every Saturday for many years,” said Ziggy. That was just the beginning.
Ziggy is a regular construction volunteer and a part of Habitat’s all-volunteer electrical crew. He also set up the metals recycling processing at the Aurora ReStore and keeps it going.
“I like doing construction because you have the opportunity to swing a hammer, pound those nails, and take out your frustrations of sitting behind a computer all day. The supervisors are so passionate about what they do and have the patience to help anyone. Habitat is like my family.”
