Miami Habitat for Humanity Guidelines for Group and Individual Volunteers (non-sponsor)

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. We count on the support of individuals and groups to meet our home-building objectives. Through the help of volunteers, we have completed hundreds of houses throughout the county. (Where Miami Habitat Builds)

Orientation meetings:

Individuals and group leaders from schools, clubs, civic groups, and churches are asked to complete an orientation before volunteering with Miami Habitat. Orientation may be completed online or in person.

Businesses and corporations are asked to partner with Habitat for Humanity through the Corporate Team Building Program. Contact the juan [dot] saborido [at] miamihabitat [dot] org (Development Associate) for more information.
