Welcome to the Habitat For Humanity signup site for members of the Fairfax Interfaith Coalition for Habitat (FICH). You will see below our upcoming BuildDay opportunities. BuildDays are normally open to all FICH congregations and their guests but at times may be restricted to a single congregation. If all the slots on a BuildDay you are interested in are taken, sign up for the Wait List - we clear these on a first-come, first-served basis as space becomes available.
We're glad you're here! Remember: no experience is necessary - we train you, and we provide all tools and equipment! All you need is enthusiasm and basic handiness. So, grab your jeans and t-shirt (or other gear depending on weather and work) - and find a date below. Please note that Habitat requires a minimum age of 16 to volunteer on construction sites.
Steps to sign up:
- If this is your first experience on a Habitat Build, or you want a refresher, please watch the following safety video prior to your first BuildDay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_VH0Fh2I0o.
- Sign up for your BuildDay below - and note the build site location as it can vary by date.
- Some time prior to your BuildDay:
- download the BuildDay Volunteer Packet for the build site (see "Related Files" section below). It contains site-specific directions and other information you will need.
- download, print, and sign the Volunteer Waiver and bring it with you on your BuildDay.
The FICH Coordinator for your BuildDay will be in contact with you and other volunteers about a week before the work date to update you on any details and the work you may be doing on that day.
BuildDay hours are generally 8:20 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Bring your own lunch unless told otherwise. Do remember to bring your signed waiver.
