Volunteering on the Work Site

Greater Erie Area Habitat for Humanity

The Greater Erie Area Habitat for Humanity has provided homeownership opportunities for more than 70 families in the Erie area including 4 in Union City for over 30 years. The COVID-19 Pandemic has certainly affected our building program and has limited our ability to host volunteers. However, we are pleased to announce that we are beginning the construction of a house. We will continue to use COVID-19 precautions which means we are not accepting any large groups of volunteers, we continue to encourage social distancing and if you are not fully vaccinated, we request that you wear a mask for your entire time on the worksite.

Beginning August 3, 2021, volunteers may begin to schedule by calling our office at 814-454-7025, ext. 107. We will be accepting a small number of volunteers on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings from 7:45 am to 12 pm. Saturday opportunities will only be available on the first Saturday of each month for a morning session from 7:45 am until 12:00 noon. Saturday workdays require a minimum of 6 people to open the site and a maximum of 8 people.

All volunteers must fill out a waiver and schedule before they can come out to the worksite.

To volunteer on a Habitat worksite, you must be 16 years of age or older. There is no experience required and we will provide all of the tools. A waiver can be obtained by downloading the forms below, or by e-mailing the volunteer coordinator with any questions.

Volunteers will need to fill out the waiver and review the worksite guidelines. Once the waiver is complete & the guidelines have been reviewed, return the waiver to the Habitat for Humanity office located at 4922 Pittsburgh Avenue, Erie, PA, 16509. Please note: waivers must have an original signature and therefore cannot be faxed or emailed.

Once the office has received it, you will receive a phone call or an e-mail letting you know that your paperwork is completed and you are eligible to schedule at any time. Note: If you just show up at the worksite without scheduling, you will be sent home.
