Volunteer as a Group
We appreciate your interest in organizing a volunteer group to support St. Croix Valley Habitat. Below are two paths to consider in coordinating a volunteer group.
Become a House Sponsor
Every house built by St. Croix Valley Habitat requires sponsorship support. House Sponsors provide the financial underwriting and volunteers for each house. A few of the benefits of becoming a house sponsor include larger group sizes and more frequent build dates. Find out how your group can become a St. Croix Valley Habitat House Sponsor.
Organize a Non-Sponsor Volunteer Group
If your group does not have the resources to sponsor a house, you can coordinate a non-sponsor group for weekday home building projects and limited weekend support. These non-sponsor groups are also ideal candidates for our A Brush with Kindness Exterior Home Repair program. Non-sponsor groups are coordinated as follows:
- Groups of up to 10 volunteers Wednesdays and Thursdays (9:00 am – 4 pm)
- Groups of up to 5 volunteers on Saturdays (8 am – 4 pm)
Non-sponsor groups are limited to one build day per group/per quarter. Non-sponsor groups are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Non-sponsor groups may have extended opportunities fulfilling our A Brush with Kindness projects. Non-sponsor groups supplement the work of sponsoring organizations. St. Croix Valley Habitat is, thus, unable to provide advance notice of build locations and may find it necessary to reschedule or cancel non-sponsor building opportunities.
Non-sponsor Group Application
Please contact our office at 715-425-5623 to get an application for your group. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be happy to get your group set up. Once your application has been received, you will be contacted to schedule a build date. Please note that because of the high volume of interest in non-sponsoring opportunities, it may take several weeks to schedule a date.
