I’ve never held a hammer in my life; can I still work on a build site?
Yes! We provide the training you will need on site. No previous construction experience is required to volunteer with us. Please be aware that construction is a physically demanding activity.
How old do I have to be to work on a build site?
At our construction sites: Volunteers age 16-17 may build only with their parent/legal guardian building along with them and may not use power tools. Ages 18+ may volunteer independently. All volunteers under 18 must complete our online waiver and have a (paper) waiver signed by their parent/legal guardian. Please understand these are safety and insurance restrictions.
At our ReStore: Volunteers ages 14-15 may volunteer only with their parent volunteering and supervising them. Ages 16+ may volunteer independently. All volunteers under 18 must arrive with a waiver signed by their parent/legal guardian.
Where are your volunteer sites?
We are currently building two homes in Morrisville, PA and our next home will be in Newportville, Bristol Township. We have TWO ReStores: Chalfont and Langhorne.
What days can I volunteer?
- Construction sites: Wednesday–Saturday
- ReStores: Tuesday–Saturday

How do I sign up to volunteer as an individual?
How do I sign up a group?

What should I wear?

What should I bring if I am a construction volunteer?
