Each year, over 2400 volunteer participate on our builds here at Habitat for Humanity. None of the work we complete here in the Harrisburg Area would be possible without volunteers.

Our construction manager, and his site supervisors provide supervision to all volunteer groups. We have groups of corporations, congregations, foundations, civic organizations, schools, and universities. Many individuals also volunteer their time with Habitat for Humanity.
