volunteer time

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat Manitoba.

Our Habitat homes are truly the homes that love built. They’re constructed almost entirely by caring volunteers, with the support of dedicated, skilled Habitat for Humanity Manitoba staff. It takes many caring hands to build a Habitat home.

Whether you’re a contractor or have never picked up a hammer in your life, we can use your help!

Volunteer opportunities on the Pandora Avenue West Development build site are Tuesday to Friday from 8:15 am – 4:00 pm from May to October 2024.

Sign up for the August Blitz Build!

Have you ever wanted to come out and work on an active construction site or learn a new skill? Here’s your chance all while make a difference in your community, and you might just forge some lasting friendships along the way!

From August 13-16, 2024 Habitat Manitoba is hosting a four day Blitz Build at the Pandora Avenue West Development in Transcona.

What’s a Blitz Build?
The August Blitz Build is an action packed, meaningful experience where we welcome 50 volunteers a day for four consecutive days in a row. At the end of the week you will see the full impact of what has been accomplished. The build site will be buzzing and it’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience!

What will you be doing while volunteering?
Framing, joisting and building walls. Your safety is our priority! All volunteers are required to complete online safety training, attend the morning safety talk at the build site and wear PPE (we provide). Our Habitat Manitoba staff and volunteers will ensure that you are safe throughout the day. Lunch is included as well as snacks and water is available throughout the day!

We invite you to come for all four days or if you can’t commit to a whole week you are welcome to come out for a day or two (Individual day spots open July 22)

We can’t wait to host you this summer. Sign up to volunteer below!
