Repairing Homes. 

                            Restoring Hope.



The Build Team needs volunteers to meet our Mission:
  • Bring home repair services to homeowners in need
  • Let homeowners remain in their homes
  • Deliver volunteer opportunities to learn construction skills
We welcome and depend on volunteers – skilled and unskilled. Interested in hearing more about joining our volunteer team?? Please contact us via email info@thebuildteam.org or 
call us at 224-633-9943. 

Just as our projects will require volunteer carpenters, plumbers and electricians, the projects will also need volunteers to open walls, paint, remove old shingles, take up flooring, move lumber, do light carpentry and the like.   In other words, if you are willing, we will be able to put you to work.  

We are looking for the following skills: 

                        Building Skills:
          • Carpentry               
          • Carpet Installation
          • Demolition             
          • Drywall         
          • Electrical
          • Flooring
          • Framing
          • Masonry
          • Painting
          • Plumbing
          • Roofing
          • Windows         
                                General Skills:
          • Computer Skills            
          • Fund Raising                      
          • Internet/Social Media                   
          • Marketing
          • Materials Coordinator
          • Photography
          • Project Leader
          • Site Management
          • Training 
          • Video/Filming/Editing
          • Volunteer Coordinator  


It’s great to have volunteers with building skills, but you can see from the above list that it takes many different talents to fulfill The Build Team mission. 

  • We have a project manager for each of our projects, who will organize your work.    
  • The project manager will be sure that the necessary tools are available.  
  • While you may wish to bring some tools of your own, all we need is for you to come to the project site, dress appropriately given the work to be done, and follow our safety rules.
Not only do the volunteer teams have the rewarding experience of helping a family in need, but they  also gain significant hands-on-experience under the guidance of the skilled volunteers who lead the repair service project. As one recent volunteer mentioned after participating in the planning, measuring,

cutting and installation of the flooring: “The Build Team directors worked closely with the volunteers to explain, teach and execute the work. With the experience gained during this volunteer opportunity, I would now be comfortable installing hardwood flooring in my own house.” It is part of the mission of The Build Team, to offer opportunities for volunteers to learn construction skills.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about joining our volunteer team. Please contact us via email info@thebuildteam.org or call us at 224-633-9943.
