Construction is what Habitat for Humanity is best known for – constructing houses for low income families.

Most of the construction that takes place are renovations/rebuilds of existing Buffalo homes donated to us. We also do three to four brand new houses a year.


We use volunteers from the community, partner families and our staff.

  • No skills are required, just a desire to work and learn
  • Age 16 or older
