skilled labor

Habitat utilizes volunteers for the construction work completed on our homes. However, there are a few types of services that regular volunteers are not able to perform: earthwork, roofing, sewer & water installation, concrete, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work. Occasionally, we also need help with lead & asbestos abatement, and drywall finishing. Any company or individual willing to partner with Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity must be licensed, insured, and committed to completing the entire project.

 

Please email construction@blueridgehabitat.org for more information or call 540-662-7066.

If you aren’t able to commit to a large project, consider donating your services to our Neighborhood Revitalization Critical Home Repair Program which assists low-income homeowners with repairs and maintenance on their homes. We regularly need plumbers, electricians, roofers, and skilled carpenters.

 

Please email info@blueridgehabitat.org for more information.

Donate Materials

Do you or your company have unused building materials, hardware, or related supplies? Are you interested in sharing your professional skill set with Habitat? In-kind donations of materials and services are a vital part of our mission; they help us cut costs and build more housing in our community.

Due to bulk purchasing agreements, ongoing in-kind donor relationships, and maintaining continuity and construction standards on all Habitat homes, we are often unable to utilize donated items in new home construction. However, if you would like to discuss donating bulk or new materials to our projects, the Director of Construction will meet with you to discuss an in-kind donor relationship.   

Don't despair!  Items that cannot be used in a new Habitat home may be donated to the ReStore. Revenue from donated items sold at the ReStore help us build more Habitat homes each year! So rest assured that your donation will be put to good use in helping families in need.
