Teacher housing effort needs volunteers

Tools and training provided

Huge progress has been made on the groundbreaking project between Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley and the Big Sky School District thanks to dedicated volunteers. Still, there is work to be done. The project is meant to increase teacher retention by providing affordable teacher housing on school grounds. With the completion of the first triplex in December, some teachers already have a home. The goal is to finish Phase 2 by Spring – and help is needed. No special skills are required, tools and training are provided.

Habitat is asking for volunteers any Wednesday through Saturday for four to eight hours.

Groups can register by emailing Drew McLaughlin at
