Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity provides opportunities for individuals and groups to volunteer year-round across the seven-county metro area. This spring, we have specific homebuilding opportunities that need a few more helping hands! Read on to see how you, your family, your coworkers, and your neighbors can volunteer in Chaska and Cottage Grove.

Where We Need You Most

We are thrilled to be back out on build sites with volunteers this spring. Starting now, we have volunteer opportunities in a couple cities in the outer area of the metro. Please consider joining us at one or both of these sites and share with your friends! 

To sign up as an individual or with friends, click the links below. If you'd like to schedule a day to build with a group of up to 8 people, contact us at volunteer@tchabitat.org. 

  • Build with us in Chaska - Great location in southern Chaska close to the Chaska Community Center, several schools, and a disc golf course.
  • Build with us in Cottage Grove - Head east of St. Paul and south of Woodbury to this nice area on the border of the Mississippi River.


Safely Volunteering During COVID-19

Volunteering with Habitat allows people to stay active and social, even as we continue to navigate the pandemic, all while giving back to the community. Anyone can sign up to volunteer as an individual or with a group—no experience necessary!

Twin Cities Habitat always prioritizes safety on construction sites and has implemented new COVID-19 safety protocols to protect volunteers, clients, and staff. Safety protocols include:

  • Shorter days. Sites are open 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. to allow more time for deep cleaning.
  • Smaller crews. Each site has a limit of 8-12 volunteers and social distancing measures are in place.
  • Masks required. KN95/N95 masks are required indoors. Masks are encouraged when working outdoors, but are optional for fully vaccinated individuals.
  • Wash hands. Handwashing stations are on all sites. Volunteers are asked to avoid sharing tools.

All volunteers must watch a safety orientation video to understand all the COVID-19 safety measures and expectations. We hope to see you soon!
