Duke Individuals

Thank you for supporting Habitat of Durham - We couldn't do what we do without volunteers and donors like you!

The volunteer shifts below have been reserved for Duke students to build safe, decent, affordable housing in Durham. You'll be changing lives and building community (AND having a blast)!

Please select the shifts below that you'd like to register for and create an account using your email address. You'll then receive a confirmation email with directions to the build site and our general construction information page.


*If you can drive to the site, please contact Amy at with how many people you can drive, what type of car you have, what campus you would prefer to pick up on, and your cell phone number so she can reach out to you about driving other volunteers.
*If you cannot drive to the site, please email her the campus you would like to be picked up on so that she can coordinate rides.
Contact Amy at if you have any trouble with registration or if you’d like to bring a group out to build all at once. On the evening prior to the event, an email will be sent out to those who have signed up with information about directions, rides, etc.

Thanks again!

Heather Graham
Volunteer Manager

Ps. While Habitat partner families do pay for these homes, Habitat collects on the mortgages over a traditional 30 year period so we need funding up front. We require about $50K in start up capital for each home project. If you'd like to help with a donation, please do by following this link

Pps. There are lots of ways to stay involved with Habitat. Follow us on facebook
for photos and updates from our builds, join our Carpenters Club social networking group, learn about our youth programs or our Women Build - there is something for everyone!
