Habitat For Humanity of Marion County is a volunteer driven organization, so we depend heavily on a strong volunteer

base to help with our efforts. Simply put,

Habitat would not exist without the help of volunteers. 

 

We're looking for skilled and unskilled construction workers, retail workers and office help.
