Homeownership is a big part of The American Dream. At Knoxville Habitat for Humanity, we are a proud partner with individuals and families who are living in substandard housing conditions who want a safe and comfortable place to call home.
When most people think about volunteering for Knoxville Habitat for Humanity the image that comes to mind is one of building houses. Sure, construction is the most visible part of our mission, but we have so many more ways that individuals and groups can give of their time.
In whatever capacity they decide to share their talents, our volunteers choose the amount of time they want to give. Some work once a month, some twice a week. It’s up to each individual volunteer. And you don’t have to be experienced to fill any volunteer position. On the construction site, we don’t require any prior knowledge of construction for most volunteer positions.
Volunteering with Knoxville Habitat for Humanity is a way to learn new skills, to meet new people, and most importantly, to help a deserving family achieve the dream of homeownership.

KNOXVILLE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY COMMITMENT TO VOLUNTEERS
The staff of Knoxville Habitat for Humanity commits to working with each of our volunteers to share the vision and the work of this ministry, to build simple, decent, affordable homes, to build self esteem, to build community, and to build family.
Those of us at Knoxville Habitat for Humanity who are paid staff (full time and part time) commit to nurture, support, train and pray for our volunteers. We recognize that we have been blessed with a wonderful group of men and women who volunteer with us sharing their gifts and talents to help the ministry of Habitat for Humanity.
We recognize that it is the responsibility of all of us to communicate with our volunteers through email, cards, letters, our web page and through personal contact. We commit to be open to new ideas and opinions of our volunteers to have a voice in this ministry.
We commit to provide our volunteers with the tools they need, power tools and hammers as well as information, tee shirts, safety equipment, office supplies, and the training needed for the task they are being asked to accomplish.
We welcome all volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life who share our mission and its goals. We welcome those who volunteer on boards and committees, those who tutor and teach, those who construct, office volunteers, and thrift store volunteers. Each volunteer is special and brings a unique set of skills and gifts to be used in the effort to build houses with and for God’s people in need.
