Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity

blog post

The heartbeat of Our Towns Habitat for Humanity in North Mecklenburg and Iredell County is our volunteers. We welcome individuals ages 16 and older to sign up to lend a hand on a one-time or regular basis. Teens ages 14 -15 may volunteer for painting, landscaping or silt fence work with the supervision of a legal guardian (who also must complete a volunteer application and waiver.)
