Habitat Chapters

Habitat GO Chapters are made up of a group of passionate, engaged volunteers committed to Habitat for Humanity’s goal of providing safe, decent and affordable housing for families in need. Chapters are in charge of fundraising for the build, leading construction and finding and supporting families for Habitat homes.

We currently have Chapters located in Carleton Place and Perth. 

Interested in volunteering?

The Carleton Place Chapter is currently looking for volunteers to assist with fundraising for their next build.

The Perth Chapter is currently looking for volunteers with build experience, particularly those with a background in construction management to oversee the remainder of the build starting May 2017.

Both Chapters always welcome local volunteers interested in continuing to develop the Habitat Chapter in these communities. Join a Chapter if you have one or more of the following skills or experience in:

  • Team leadership
  • Volunteer coordination
  • Construction
  • Land acquisition
  • Accounting or finance
  • Project management
  • Communications and marketing
  • Fundraising
  • Administration
  • Social Work

Volunteers who may not have the above skills, but possess enthusiasm and a willingness to learn can also join!
