Not handy with a hammer?
There are many ways to volunteer
It takes a village, in fact; it takes a whole community to step up to the challenge of eliminating poverty housing. We need as many volunteers helping off the construction site as we do hammering nails.
Below are just a few of the current volunteer opportunities with our administration and operations teams. We understand your most precious resource is your time and all of the volunteer positions can be tailored to fit your interests. If you don’t see one that catches your attention, please contact Hillary Critchlow, (802) 872-8726, firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you could lend a hand.
Our local Habitat for Humanity has multiple openings for leadership positions on committees.

Congregations Relations: Liaisons & Committee Members
Serve as a congregation liaison to help your faith community connect with Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity.
- Liaisons act as the communication link with Habitat by sharing news and information about organizational needs. Through liaisons many congregations become more deeply involved with building crews by bringing snacks to sites, participating as teams on homes, and through fundraising activities.
- Committee members keep liaisons informed, establish new relationships, and deepen existing relationships with congregations. Members also support congregations in whatever way they wish to connect with GMHfH.
