ABOUT THE BAKER FAMILY


Miriam, a future homeowner, is a single mom of four children, who, in her words, “is trying my best to raise my children to be positive, happy, great individuals in a safe environment.” “Home,” to her, means security, both financially and safety-wise. It’s “a feeling of a place to call OUR home,” said Miriam.Because of her decision to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County, Miriam will be able to provide that “place to call OUR home”. She will build their home alongside volunteers from the surrounding community.Miriam has a message for those who will sponsor the construction of her home, as well as for the volunteers who will help make her dream a reality. “Thank you so much,” she said, “for everything you do for the families in need and the communities that you enrich with your hard work and your giving hearts.”

Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County FL, Inc.

At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves. Our goal is to help families break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials. You can help us do more in all the many ways that Habitat builds. Let’s build– together.

About Volunteering at Habitat for Humanity


Welcome. Thank you for volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, believing in our mission, and supporting one important vision - that everyone deserves a decent place to live. Here are some important things to know about your upcoming volunteer day.


What is a typical work day like?

We build year-round, Tuesday-Saturday from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. 

7:45 a.m. | Volunteers Arrive and Check In
7:50 a.m. | Safety Meeting
8:00 a.m. | The work day begins.
11:30 a.m. | Lunch Break
PLEASE NOTE: Habitat does not provide lunches. Please have each volunteer bring his/her lunch.
2:00 p.m. | The work day ends.

What should volunteers wear?
Acceptable attire includes a t-shirt, shorts or jeans, and sneakers or work-boots. Please make sure to wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty and possibly torn or stained. NO flip-flops, Toms, Crocs, or any open toed/back shoes.

What should volunteer bring?

1.    Water or Coffee | There will be water provided on site, but bringing your own water is always a good idea. It is very important to stay hydrated. Please feel free to bring additional beverages, such as coffee, with you to the work site.

2.    Hat and Sunscreen | Most volunteers will be working outside for most of the day (if not the entire day). You will need to protect your neck and face from sunburn. Bring a hat and/or sunscreen.

3.    Gloves | Shared work gloves are provided unless you would like to bring your own.

4.    A Positive Attitude | Plan on having fun while putting in a hard day's work. Remember the purpose for which you are volunteering - to build a quality home for a hard working family in need!

Habitat provides all tools and personal protective equipment.


Worksite Courtesy and Safety

Smoking | There is NO SMOKING on any Habitat volunteer site. If you must take a smoking break, please step away from the site.

Safety is #1| At Habitat Hillsborough, the safety of volunteers and staff is the highest priority. At the start of the day, the site supervisor will go over our safety rules and answer any questions you may have. Volunteers should immediately report unsafe working conditions and health hazards to the site supervisor. 

Pay Attention | The best way to ensure safety for all workers is the be aware of your surroundings, at all times. You need to look out for your fellow volunteers like they are looking our for you. If you see a potentially dangerous situation, let the Site Supervisor or someone aware immediately. It's also important to pay attention to the safety talk given at the beginning of your work day.

Protect Yourself | It is for your safety to wear any safety equipment provided to your by Habitat. This will depend on the scope of work for the day. In most cases, you will need to wear eye protection and gloves. If you are framing a new home, you will be required to wear a hard hat. If dust bothers you, please wear a dust mask. If working outside, remember to protect yourself from the sun.

Follow the Site Supervisor | On each job site, the Site Supervisor is the boss. There may be other ways to perform a specific task, but we do things the Habitat way. Once the Site Supervisor makes a decision, please follow his/her directions.

Respect | Please show respect to the building and environment with which you are working. Please take care of the tools and return them to the proper place when you are finished. Please respect your fellow volunteers and Habitat staff.

Learn | Most people that volunteer with Habitat are learning on the job. It is a great experience when you learn something new and are able to teach someone else. Learn as much as you can during your volunteer experience. You'd be amazed at the new things you will learn!

Thank you for building homes, communities, and hope!
