Other Ways to Volunteer
Habitat for Humanity of Teller County has plenty of volunteer opportunities beyond swinging a hammer on the construction site!
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 more. If you want to use your voice to spread awareness of our mission throughout the community, consider joining a committee. Please email Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or call our office at 719-687-4447.
Vino & Notes Committee
This Committee plans our annual fundraiser, Vino & Notes. The Vino & Notes festival is a wine and music festival benefitting Habitat for Humanity of Telle County. The festival takes place near the end of summer at Memorial Park in Woodland Park. The committee helps recruit wineries, vendors, musicians, and volunteers to support the fundraiser.
Homebuyer Support Committee
The Homebuyer Support Committee supports the Home Buyer/Home Owner Services staff in ensuring success of the homebuyer partnership program. This committee will help formulate goals, select an effective education program, recruit and train new committee members, and establish & maintain an ongoing mentoring program with homebuyers.

Build Development & Design Committee

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.

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.
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.
