Join Us!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Greater Lynchburg Habitat!

Volunteers of no experience or with great experience make the Habitat for Humanity model work beautifully. They are critically important to furthering the organization’s mission in our community. Through the different places one can help, Habitat volunteers impact many local families each year.

Individuals of all backgrounds, of all faiths or of no faith, of any shape or size or color are welcome. Greater Lynchburg Habitat welcomes groups, too. Planning is very important so be sure to contact us first. Please contact Kathy Malloy, Volunteer Coordinator, by email to volunteer@glhfh.org or call 434.528.3774, ext. 104. She will assist you with choosing how and when you would like to volunteer.

There are some age restrictions.  Anyone over 18 can participate on the construction site.  Youth of ages 16 to 18 can work construction but there are some limitations. Those aged 14 to 16 years of age are permitted on the construction site when no construction work in the house is taking place.  Activity could be projects like planting trees, spreading mulch, placing gravels, etc. Sorry, but children under the age of 14 are unable to volunteer on our construction sites. Child-friendly activities off site can be pre-arranged. Call the Volunteer Coordinator to discuss options.
