Hawaii Village Build

You’re invited to bring a team of volunteers to Hawaii to work alongside Habitat partner families as they build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter! Habitat for Humanity builds in many communities statewide in an effort to address Hawaii’s affordable housing crisis, and we need your help. Nearly half a million residents of Hawaii live in households with extreme housing cost burden, spending more than 50% of their income on housing. Through Hawaii Habitat’s Hawaii Village Build program, we welcome volunteer teams to help alleviate this problem by building safe, decent, affordable shelter in partnership with families and individuals in Hawaii.

Host Sites

With available host sites around the state, we’ll help you select a location and time frame that best suits your group’s needs and interests.

Your group will have the opportunity to build, rehab, or repair homes. Construction skills are helpful but not necessary; we’ll teach you what you need to know! You’ll have the satisfaction of seeing the tangible results of your work, and the reward of knowing that you’ve supported a family in achieving their goals and improving their lives.

*Alternate work projects may be available at ReStore or administrative office. Please work with your host coordinator to plan ahead.

Experience Hawaii

While you’re here, make the most of all the natural beauty and exciting activities our state has to offer. Before or after your build week, take some time for cultural activities, hiking, or swimming at the beach! Explore our fun and friendly cities and towns.

Trip Fee

There is a deposit fee of $350 per person to reserve your spot for an HVB trip. There is a standard trip package which includes: food, lodging, cultural activities, contingency, first aid kit and a contribution to support Habitat’s work. The estimated trip package, including your deposit, may range from $1,200-1,500. If your group would prefer upgraded lodging, we can recommend local hotels. You would be responsible for making your own lodging arrangements and covering the additional cost.

Each member of the group must provide their own airfare and cannot fundraise to pay for their airfare. You may also want to look into purchasing travel insurance for yourself (optional). Groups must provide their own ground transportation—unless host affiliate provides the team with a company van, then groups are responsible for filling up the gas tank.
