Our meetings for the 2018-2019 year will be Wednesdays from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm in Student Union room 218C.
This is a volunteering club. Builds and restore events are usually held on weekends. Sign up at our meetings.
You don’t need to have any previous construction experience to volunteer. This is a safe space to learn!
Parties & Events
We have social events and partial proceeds fundraisers throughout the year; we encourage you to join us.
During builds, volunteers get involved in the construction, repair, or demolition process. We work with low-income families in Florida to get people reliable housing.
Restores are home improvement stores, locations and donation centers. We’ll normally volunteer at them and help with whatever tasks they need to have completed.
During our club meetings, we discuss information pertaining to the club and share dates for builds, socials, and other events. Sign up for builds at our meetings.
Join us at our meetings and becoming an active member in our community, find us on social media to get to know your fellow Habitat members, and sign up for builds to make an impact in the Greater Orlando area.
Meetings: when and where?
For the Spring 2019 semester, we will be meeting every other Wednesday each month at 7:30 pm in the Student Union, Room 218C. Check the calendar on the events page for meeting dates!
How often do we host builds?
For Spring 2019, we have several builds throughout the semester! We have about two a month. They typically last from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Please visit our Builds page for more information on builds, and see the events page for specific build dates.
Are builds always on Saturday?
We try to schedule at least one Friday to build each semester to accommodate for members who work on weekends; we will let members know during meetings or through GroupMe if we have any weekday events.
What happens if I can't attend a meeting?
We keep track of attendance in order to reward members who are actively participating, but attendance is not necessary. There is not a mandatory attendance requirement in order to maintain membership. All of the important dates and PowerPoints will be posted on our social media and on our website. Those who come to meetings have priority when it comes to signing up for builds, but if there are extra spots available, we will post it on the Facebook page. Bi-weekly emails will be sent with all the important information you need!
