BIA Parade of Homes - July 2019

BIA Parade of Homes
July 13-28, 2019

This year, the Parade of Homes will be held at Evans Farm in Lewis Center!

Volunteers are needed in shifts staffing model homes at the Parade. This means that we will have hundreds of volunteer shifts to fill, and we need your help!

Volunteers will receive:

  • Free parking and admission to the Parade of Homes ($20 value)

  • A Habitat for Humanity t-shirt to be worn during their shift

  • Habitat for Humanity will earn $20/hr for every hour volunteered. With every position filled, we expect to earn over $20,000 to help us build homes for local families in need of affordable housing!

Volunteers are not required to be knowledgeable about Habitat for Humanity. Builders of the model homes will provide instructions upon arrival. Volunteers must be able to stand for the duration of their shift.


Times of shifts for each day of the Parade TBA

The times for each of the volunteer shifts are still being determined. If you are interested in receiving an update once they are announced, click the button below:


Volunteering with us at the Parade of Homes is both a great opportunity to help support Habitat for Humanity of Delaware & Union Counties as well as gain free admission to the Parade of Homes!

Sign up with a friend or family member to make a fun day of it, and raise funds for a great cause!

About Women Build

Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Week is an annual weeklong event that invites women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through building safe, affordable homes. This week spotlights the homeownership challenges faced by women and empowers women of all different ages, backgrounds and industries to come together to build homes and make a powerful and visible impact on our local community through housing.

100% of the funds raised during Women Build Week will go towards our 2 Habitat home builds this spring. Learn more about future Habitat homeowners currently in our program here.

Get Involved during Women Build Week

There are several ways to get involved with Women Build Week:

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need experience in construction?

No experience is required to help on the job site, volunteers of all skill levels are invited to build with us. Our construction manager will train all volunteers on skills needed to complete the projects for that day, and all tools will be provided!

Are men allowed?

Yes, all are welcome to volunteer during Women Build Week. This week provides a place for women to learn the skills needed to build a home, but that does not exclude men from participating.

How old do you have to be to work on the job site?

You must be at least 16 years or older to work on a Habitat for Humanity job site. However, there are opportunities for minors to help, including providing lunch for construction volunteers, participating at Walls Builds, helping to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity, volunteering at special Habitat events throughout the year, and those 14 years or older can help in the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
