The best part of helping to build a home with Habitat for Humanity, is attending the dedication ceremony for the family whom you helped make their dreams come true.

Our Story

Since 2002, local Habitat for Humanity organizations in cities across the country have teamed up with area law firms for a series of build events that bring firm attorneys, staff and summer associates together to get their hands dirty, strengthen relationships and help build affordable housing for low- and moderate-income area residents.

The purpose of Buildable Hours is to give firms the opportunity to spend a day outside the office developing team dynamics and giving back in a substantive, hands-on way while raising awareness on the issue of affordable housing in these communities. It was founded in 2001 by Roger Goldman, a retired partner in the Washington, D.C. Office of Latham & Watkins, and Scott Michel, a partner in the Washington, D.C. firm of Caplin & Drysdale.
Generally, Habitat for Humanity will host Buildable Hours groups throughout the summer. Please contact your local area build coordinator for community-specific information -- see local program contacts on the Cities & Contacts  page -- or if you’re interested in learning more, please contact Buildable Hours at buildablehoursdc@lw.com.


Buildable Hours, Inc. is a Washington, D.C. - based nonprofit organization of law firms committing financial and physical resources to build homes with local Habitat for Humanity organizations for deserving families.
