Join Providencia WPB as we partner with Habitat for Humanity on a One Build Day service project here in our city! We will be participating in service projects throughout the fall for all to join, but this particular day will be for those ages 18 and up.
We'll be working on roofing, windows, and doors and no experience is required. Please click here to fill out HFH's volunteer signup form. Below are the details provided by Habitat for Humanity on all of the specifics for the project:
Eligibility: Volunteers 18 years and older are invited to join us for this service project.
Checking In: Volunteers should arrive at 8:00 am for check-in and a safety orientation. Be sure to sign in and out to log your hours. (This helps us with funding)
Skills: Construction volunteers are not required to have any building skills. However, it is very helpful to know what skills each volunteer possesses. For this reason, we ask that all skilled volunteers (those with prior building experience) inform the construction supervisor when arriving on site. Volunteers should be prepared to work on any aspect of housing construction including (but not limited to) framing, roofing, painting, landscaping, flooring, loading and unloading materials and cleaning up.
Food/Water: Water will be provided onsite for your group members, you are welcome to bring lunch or have it delivered.
What to Wear: Each volunteer must wear closed toe shoes with a thick sole (ex: sneakers/work boots). Regardless of what task you will be doing, proper working attire will help make your day more comfortable. South Florida is typically hot and humid so dress accordingly.
What to Bring: Please bring: work gloves (if you have them) and sunscreen.
Restrooms: There is always a portable toilet available on site.
Parking: Please carpool when possible as parking is limited, and be respectful of the neighbor’s properties.
Personal Valuables: Habitat accepts no responsibility for lost or stolen items. We recommend that you not bring items with high monetary or sentimental value; that you remove all valuable items in your car from view, and that you put your name on any items you do bring.
Safety and Risk: Habitat PBC takes safety very seriously. Our construction supervisors are experienced, well trained specialists. For safety sake, we expect volunteers to follow instructions and cautions from the supervisors.
Illness or Injury: There is always a First Aid Kit available on site for any worker who becomes ill or injured. You will be welcome to rejoin your work team after you recover and can again participate fully.
Communication and Supervision: Your volunteer crew will be supervised by members of our full-time construction staff. Once the crew is working, the Habitat PBC construction staff rotates throughout the project under construction to provide technical assistance and additional direction where needed.
Weather: If it is raining we still build, as you know the weather in South Florida changes every hour. If there are hurricane or thunderstorm warnings then we don’t build.
