Habitat NOVA is temporarily closing its home office in Alexandria. All staff will be working remotely and will be available via email and phone. We are also suspending all currently scheduled Build Days through Tuesday April 14, at which time we will reassess our next steps.

Andrew Chapel has joined the Fairfax Interfaith Coalition for Habitat (FICH). As a member, our congregation has the opportunity to participate in MONTHLY Habitat BuildDays: usually on Saturdays, Wednesdays, or Fridays. Please click the button below to view the schedule and to volunteer. (You may also see some BuildDays or slots designated only for certain congregations.) If all the slots on any BuildDay are taken, you can sign up to be on the Wait List – these are on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. Please follow instructions on the sign-up page.
No experience is necessary! Habitat staff and experienced volunteers will train you and provide all tools and equipment! So, grab your jeans and t-shirt (or other gear depending on weather and work) – and select a date. Please note that Habitat requires a minimum age of 16 to volunteer on construction sites. A volunteer waiver PDF is available for download on the sign-up page and must be completed and brought with you each time you volunteer.
Habitat NOVA partners with qualifying families and the community to build affordable, sustainable homes in Northern Virginia. This is a great way to get to know people, working side-by-side for a good cause: to help a family build strength, stability, and self-reliance to create better lives for themselves and their children through the purchase of their first home.
