Put Some Heart in Housing: Help Build the BIA Habitat Home

The walls are up and the 3rd BIA Habitat Home is now officially under construction.

Located on Atwood Terrace in Columbus, the home is being built using 60-70% volunteer labor. The prospective homeowner, a single mom with two young daughters, has helped to build other homes with Habitat and is now excitedly working on her own home.

Join us this February as we finish the BIA Habitat home. We are working on interior finishes and punch out items.

You can participate for a full day or a half day — whatever meets your schedule. All skill levels are welcome. You can even sign up your company for a day of volunteering.  Work days are typically from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Volunteers need to be age 16 or older. 

It’s easy to volunteer. Just select the link below for the day you are available.
