North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity provides an opportunity for organization to meet their philanthropic goals in a unique and highly rewarding way. Organizations are often drawn to the 'Habitat Experience' not only because of the urgent need for affordable housing in our community, but also for the extraordinary hands-on opportunity it provides.

The Team Build Program and Volunteer Partner Programs are an opportunity for businesses and organizations to use their pledges, gifts, and talents to help those in need in our local area.

Your Team Build can be located on the new home build site, at one of our ReStores for the day, or assisting at a fundraising special.

Team Build and Volunteer Partner companies are asked to provide volunteer crews who can be skilled or unskilled. On home build sites volunteers must be 16 or older.

 

Participants in the NWV Habitat Team Build or Volunteer Partner program will not only make a difference for a local family, they and the company will gain by:

  1. Learning teamwork skills in an informal setting.
  2. Motivating employees to get to know each other better.
  3. Allowing employees to experience firsthand giving back to the community and helping others through your company’s involvement.
  4. Fosters employee loyalty.
  5. Reinforces how important effective communication is at a company.
  6. Creates unity among members of your team.
  7. Supports the fact that a team of individuals can accomplish more working together than can an individual working alone.
