When we build playhouses, we build joy in our community!
Our Playhouse Build program brings together creative volunteers and generous sponsors to build joy in our community. By sponsoring a playhouse, donors support our mission and provide local children with a space to play, create, and call their own. These one-day events are great team-building opportunities that are customizable, flexible, and provide a convenient, rewarding outcome.

How it Works
Teams of 6-10 volunteers (18 years +) spend a day working together to decorate and assemble a fully functional children’s playhouse. No construction or artistic experience is required; as always we provide all materials and trained, certified staff are available on site to lead the day.
Playhouse Builds are single-day events hosted at your group’s preferred location such as your office parking lot, a local park, or our ReStore. We provide your team with a complimentary catered lunch on the build day and a Habitat t-shirt. We handle the logistics of transporting both the raw materials and the completed playhouse.

When you sponsor a Playhouse Build, you’re sharing your commitment to build hope in our community. Play is an essential part of child development, and creative play in a safe, dream-inspiring place instills confidence and joy in the hope of our community’s future: our children.
Standard Playhouse Build sponsorships start at $2,500. This buy-in donation covers the foundations of the build day including the cost of materials, transportation, staff and instruction, and it contributes toward fulfilling our local mission. Donations can come directly from the sponsoring business or organization, or we’ll help you get creative with peer-to-peer fundraising to build enthusiasm among your team!
- Collaborative marketing recognition on our platforms.
- Option to select benefitting family, or donate playhouse in your organization’s name for resale in our ReStore.
- Develop a culture of social responsibility among your group, and provide them with a unique team building experience.
Nominations for Donated Playhouses
Most often, completed playhouses are donated to a local family thanks to the generosity of each Playhouse Build sponsor. A playhouse recipient might be a Habitat partner family, a family chosen directly by the sponsor, or a family who was nominated by a member of the community. Alternatively, a sponsor might choose to donate the finished playhouse to our ReStore for resale, doubling the impact of their donation.
