Raise the Roof, the Shoreline Habitat connection, and children's nonprofit Roots 4 Relief invite the community to join them for a day of building for Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers will build the exterior walls for use in a future Raise the Roof sponsored Habitat house in New Haven, and Roots 4 Relief will host activities that provide opportunities for children and families to experience the Habitat mission.

Build volunteers should register for one of four 90-minute shifts. Previous build experience is not necessary. You can also register to help with setting up and cleaning up. Build volunteers and those who wish to help with setup or cleanup must be at least 16 years of age and sign a waiver. Volunteers younger than 18 must have the waiver co-signed by a parent.

To give as many people as possible the opportunity to build, please sign up for only one build shift per person. Thank you for helping us share the experience!

While participants of the actual wall build are required to be at least 16 years of age, Roots 4 Relief will have other “kid friendly” crafts & activities that will be used in Habitat homes. Examples include birdhouses, quilt patches, builders' aprons, and window boxes. These items will be gifts for Habitat Partner families.

Stop by our Message Walls to write your wishes and blessings or add your artwork. The walls will be built into the next Raise the Roof Habitat house with all of the messages tucked into the heart of the home.
