Other Ways to Volunteer

Habitat for Humanity of Teller County has plenty of volunteer opportunities beyond swinging a hammer on the construction site!

Faith Engagement

Faith engagement continues to be a vibrant part of our volunteer community! During our Building on Faith events, volunteers from churches throughout Teller County come together to help build homes for members of our community.

Church bodies can come together to cook meals for our construction volunteers, form prayer circles or come out to the construction site themselves for a day of building! (No construction experience is necessary.)

The benefits of working with Habitat for Humanity are numerous for the faith community and our affiliate. We hope to continue building relationships, building homes, and building faith! Partnering with Habitat gives people a concrete way to put their faith into action and be the body of Christ in the world.

Many churches report that when they become Habitat for Humanity partners, they experience revitalization throughout the congregation. Some note that membership grows and that giving increases because people want to be a part of a vibrant church that reaches beyond itself. Churches often report that members get excited about other mission opportunities after working on Habitat projects.

To get involved, please contact Megan at 719-687-4447, or via email at info@tellerhabitat.org.

Join a Committee!

Volunteers help Habitat in more places than just the construction site! We have several volunteer committees to plan events, community engagement and awareness, and coordinate volunteers. If you want to use your voice to spread awareness of our mission throughout the community, consider joining a committee. Please email Megan at dev@tellerhabitat.org for more information or call our office at 719-687-4447.

Events Committee

Our events committee plans fundraising events held throughout the year including Vino & Notes (our annual wine and music festival), Women Build, and more! We always welcome creative minds to help us organize fun activities and community events!

Marketing Committee

The Marketing Committee works on letting Teller County know what we have going on and how the community can join in! If you have a knack for graphic design, outreach, web design, this may be the perfect way for you to get involved in our mission. The Marketing Committee works on a variety of tasks, helping recruit Homebuyer Partners, volunteers, and advertising events.

Volunteer Coordination

We recently welcomed a volunteer coordinator, Kathy, who is responsible for scheduling volunteers on the construction site and around the office. Kathy has a big job and could use help in the office with data entry and file organization. Please email volunteer@tellerhabitat.org for more information.

Collegiate Challenge

Collegiate Challenge is a year-round alternative break program that gives students the opportunity to spend a week in Colorado volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Teller County. During this unique service program participants have the chance to:

  • Meet and work alongside our Partner Families
  • Learn new construction skills

  • Explore beautiful Colorado!

Group spots tend to fill up fast! Other dates outside of the traditional spring break may be available too; for more information, please visit the Collegiate Challenge website, or contact our office at 719-687-4447 or info@tellerhabitat.org.

AmeriCorps

Habitat for Humanity of Teller County is proud to partner with AmeriCorps NCCC volunteers!

AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps)

AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) strengthens communities and develops leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with non-profits—secular and faith based—local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national and state parks, Indian tribes, and schools, members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned.

AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women age 18-24. Members are assigned to one of five campuses — Denver, CO; Sacramento, CA; Baltimore, MD; Vicksburg, MS; and Vinton, IA.

Drawn from the successful models of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s and the U.S. military, AmeriCorps NCCC is built on the belief that civic responsibility is an inherent duty of all citizens and that national service programs work effectively with local communities to address pressing needs.

AmeriCorps VISTA

Volunteer In Service To America (VISTA) is another AmeriCorps program. This is slightly different because one volunteer serves with one affiliate or on one project for the entire year. It is geared toward capacity building. Habitat for Humanity was able to host both NCCC and VISTA.VISTA volunteers become a member of Habitat staff, joining the team as a full-time vital team member.
