Habitat for Humanity of Lafayette is a volunteer-driven organization.
Without the help of dedicated Habitat volunteers, we would not be able to provide homes to low-income families in the Lafayette area. People from all walks of life are invited to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with God and future homeowners.
We appreciate individuals and groups who can help us for a day, but we are always searching for committed volunteers to join our team and assist on a regular basis. By doing so, we can achieve our vision of a community and a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
assist with builds
From laying the framework to painting trim, we need help building Habitat homes from beginning to end. No matter your level of construction experience, we’ll put you to work.
make meals for volunteers
Our volunteers work hard, and we like to thank them by feeding them. Individuals are welcome to make or purchase meals for our groups, and restaurants are invited to cater or donate items on their menu. We gather for a meal and fellowship with volunteers and partner families every Thursday.
be part of neighborhood revitalization
We are one of 240 Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) affiliates in the world. Our goal is to revitalize and empower neighborhoods in Greater Lafayette. While we organize projects in the Wabash, Miller, and Ellsworth-Romig neighborhoods, we encourage community members to start their own projects.
assist with events
Habitat events are designed to raise awareness about Habitat for Humanity, what we do, and our mission, as well as serve as a means for fundraising. Whether you can help plan events or simply serve as an extra set of hands, you can be an asset at our events.
serve on committees
If you’re passionate about Habitat and have a desire to help with the big picture of our organization, we encourage you to join one of several committees.
