Habitat is a community of volunteers who work in partnership with other Catholic Churches and the homeowners to build one or more Habitat houses per year here in Cobb County. Volunteer opportunities include house construction, food committee, and multiple fundraising events.
We still need additional Construction Volunteers for our 9-week 2017 Habitat Two-House build. Click Here to see the build calendar and a description of what we will be doing each week.
NEW THIS YEAR is an Electronic Volunteer Sign-Up Process. All construction volunteers must now sign-up to work via the NW Metro Atlanta (NWMA) Habitat for Humanity Website.
This is a two-step process:
First, you will create a profile on the system by providing your name and contact information. (No information collected will be sold or used for solicitation.) Be sure to (1) click the box next to the phrase "I have read, understand and accept the Liability/Medical Waiver, (2) Identify the Catholic Coalition Church your are affiliated with and (3) select the "Construction Build Volunteer" category. Once you've completed your profile, you will receive a temporary password via the same email you used to sign up.
Second, using the "temporary" password emailed to you, log back into the system and create your own "personal" password. You can now begin registering for a specific build day (or days) by clicking on Use Reservation Code field and entering/applying the code: CCC17 There will be two events displayed, one for the regular build dates (Sept. 9th through October 28th) and the other for Landscaping Day on November 4th. Click on Register for an Event (see screen shot below) to register for a specific day(s).
Remodeling, cleaning out, downsizing or just getting organized? Consider donating your excess household goods and building materials to our Cobb County Habitat Re-Store located at the corner of South Cobb drive and Concord Roads (next to Planet Fitness). We will gladly take new and gently-used items off your hands, and you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing they helped build Habitat Houses here in Cobb County. All donations are tax-deductible. Call the donation hotline at 770-962-4200 to schedule a pick-up. pdf CLICK HERE (164 KB) for a list of items we will accept for donation.
