Volunteer Information

Camden County Habitat for Humanity® fosters
economic empowerment and sustainable community
revitalization.  The key to our past, current and future
success is the volunteer.

Volunteer Groups call 856.963.8018 ext.100
Individual Volunteers call 856.486.0040

 

Volunteer teams from business, religious and community organizations reinforce themes of teamwork and strengthen interpersonal relationships while working to eradicate poverty housing.  Not only are they making a difference, but it’s a difference they see immediately and the
satisfaction is immense.

Our affiliate offers three ways for volunteer groups and individuals to make a difference – on our construction site, at our community garden, and in our ReStore.

How We Build
Habitat obtains its properties throughout Camden County and funds the builds through various grants as well as donations from group volunteer days during the year. Without these donations we would not be able to build. Once the funds are raised to build, construction can begin.

It typically takes a year to obtain a home, raise enough capital to build, qualify a Partner Family, and start to build. Home construction is done through sub-contractors along with volunteers and takes between 6-8 months to complete.

We currently build between 4-6 homes per year and have built 50 plus homes in Camden County over the past 27 years.

How Your Group Can Volunteer

On-site Construction:
Habitat volunteer groups (corporate or individuals) who would like to work on the construction site are asked to donate $2500 to have a build day for up to 15 people.  In return for your donation, you will receive your name on worksite signage, your name on Habitat’s website, and coverage on all of Habitat’s social media outlets.

Additional Group Volunteer Opportunities:
For groups who do not wish to be part of construction, but would still like to volunteer, we offer opportunities at our community garden located in Camden and our Camden County Habitat ReStore located in Pennsauken.
Volunteer groups are asked to donate $1500. In return for your donation, you will receive your name on Habitat’s website and coverage on all of Habitat’s social media outlets.
