Inclement Weather Policy

Our homeowners are working really hard to build and buy their homes, so we build rain or shine!

However, sometimes we get weather that makes traveling and construction unsafe. If you are planning to volunteer when the weather turns for the worse, please read the following information on what to do:

  • In the event of an unscheduled closure of our Construction/Home Repair Sites or Austin Habitat offices, a notice will be accessible by calling our Volunteer Hotline number at 512-448-5287. This number will have a recorded message concerning site closures or delays by 7:00 A.M. on the day of the event.
  • Additionally, our online Volunteer Calendar will be updated with the same information.
  • Volunteer group leaders will be contacted by phone and via e-mail, when possible.
  • Please note that Austin Habitat follows the inclement weather policy of the Austin Independent School District during the work week.
