HABITAT FOR HUMANITY NEEDS YOU !
Rutherford County Habitat for Humanity seeks to provide families in our community with decent and affordable homes. This process is only possible through the contribution of habitat volunteers. If you volunteer with Habitat you are guaranteed a life changing experience that allows you to make a difference, create new friends, learn new skills, and see your hard work come to fruition.
As a volunteer with Habitat you will be able to think globally but act locally!
Save money on a retreat for your business or family. Plan a Habitat work day instead! We welcome individuals, businesses, church groups, college groups, and high school students. You must be 16 years of age to volunteer on the job site.
In order to accurately educate our partners, donors, and volunteers about Habitat, we offer a special "Habitat 101" seminar. During the presentation, we give an overview of our organization and all answer questions. Everyone is welcomed to attend, there is no cost, and best of all... we come to your company, church, or group function!
Call 615.890.5877 x106 to schedule.
