So, You Want to Swing a Hammer?
We have many opportunities to satisfy the desire to get involved. Whether you're an individual, small group, a large business, or other caring organization, there are several ways to become involved in our work. You can change your neighborhood one nail, one board, one day at a time.
Build your team while building your public image, your community, and most of all a home for a neighbor. Imagine the cooperation required to build walls, install drywall or set a series of trusses. Have you ever tried these activities with a group of your peers? How would you trust each other, communicate togethner, adn develop and implement a plan? Here is your chance to find out! Our home construction projects provide challenges that require teamwork, open communication and creative problem solving. We will provide supervision, equipment and construction materials. All that's needed from you is your team!
A home construction site can be intimidating for some women. It's the number one reason why they don't volunteer. To overcome this problem, we hold an annual Women's Build. The event is sponsored by Lowe's, and is a women only experience that has helped us to complete 19 homes in a friendly, safe, and non-threatening environment. Over the years, hundreds of women in Dickinson and Iron Counties have participated in every phase of construction, and everyone leaves the site with real construction experience and a host of new friends.
