Get involved by volunteering on the construction site or with Rock the Block®. Individuals and groups are welcome!

We need YOUR help!

October 19 – 21, our team and volunteers will work on homes in several communities across Dallas County, completing repairs that preserve the safety and stability of our neighbors’ homes.

Your work matters. Volunteers are crucial to helping Habitat execute critical repairs, make homes more accessible, and ensure that Central Iowa homeowners are able to remain in their homes. We need your help to make this possible!

New Construction

Help make dreams of homeownership a reality for hardworking, low-income families in our new home construction builds. Volunteers assist with framing, siding, flooring, trimming, painting, installing doors and windows, landscaping and more! No experience is needed; our construction managers will teach you anything you need to know on site.

Schedule a Group

Groups can be between five to eight people (or more when working on sites with multiple houses). Just register below and you’ll be contacted by a real person with a custom link for you and your group to use. Sign up is easy and everyone will be able to sign the waiver online (keepin’ it green). Everyone who signs up online will get all the details about their build a week before.
