Ways to Volunteer

We rely on volunteers year-round, but there are special opportunities to lend a hand as well.

Birthday Builds

Use your special day to DO GOOD for the community with a Brookings Habitat Birthday Build! Whether you have experience or are completely new to tasks, we'll help you celebrate in a completely unique way that helps you help others.

We'll provide the cake, commemorative t-shirts and training for your crew of friends, family, or neighbors as you spend time on a home build. You'll learn new skills while having fun and feeling great about the impact your special day can have on others.

Participants must be age 18+. Contact us for more details.

Every year the Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity hosts two or three groups of Care-A-Vanners. These dedicated individuals and couples travel across the country to assist in builds for multiple affiliates, including ours.

What do RV Care-A-Vanners do?

  • They travel around the United States and Canada, helping local Habitat for Humanity affiliates build hundreds of houses annually.
  • RV Care-A-Vanner volunteers participate in projects such as house construction, roofing, interior, and finish work, renovations, or disaster relief.
  • Those who prefer non-construction activities can volunteer in the Habitat affiliate office, or help in other ways around the building site.
  • Many RV Care-A-Vanners help local Habitat affiliates raise the awareness of poverty housing and homelessness by speaking to churches, civic groups, and local media.
  • Individual Care-A-Vanners often make donations to their local Habitat affiliate.
  • Some even organize fundraising teams and sponsor entire houses.
