The most popular volunteer opportunity is helping on the construction site. Many of us have been inspired by former President Jimmy Carter’s example of picking up a hammer and helping to build a home. Habitat Newburgh currently works from 8:00AM -1:30PM Wednesday and Saturday, rain or shine, and welcomes your participation, whether you are an experienced tradesperson or you don’t know a sixteen-penny nail from a spackling knife. We are always looking for non-construction volunteers as well. We ask that you tell us about yourself on our volunteer survey form so we can send you our volunteer package with frequently asked questions and all the specifics on volunteering. This form can be filled out on the computer and e-mail directly to the office, or you can download and print this form to be mailed to our office.

If you would like to bring a group to the construction site, please schedule your visit with the Habitat office at (845) 568-6035 so we can make your volunteer experience as worthwhile as possible.


The Habitat houses are funded solely with generous donations from people like you. You can safely donate online using a credit card through Habitat for Humanity International’s (HFHI)secure website. Please indicate Habitat Greater Newburgh as the affiliate to which you designate your gift.

Each affiliate tithes 10% of its undesignated funds to HFHI to further home building in countries with fewer resources than ours. Since building costs are much lower, we estimate that our gifts to our neighbors in Mexico and friends in Ethiopia (Habitat for Humanity Ethiopia became an affiliate at the same time as Habitat Newburgh) have build approximately 25 more Habitat houses abroad.

Wish List

If you wish to donate any of the items on our wish list – tools, construction materials, appliances, office supplies, etc. – or any other in-kind donation, please contact the Habitat office at (845) 568-6035 so that we make proper arrangements.
