Volunteer

Every Hand Makes a Difference

Habitat is Volunteer Powered

It takes everyone working together to build community! Habitat volunteers have varied skills, interests, and passions that contribute to our mission of building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Building houses with Habitat is an experience most often associated with Habitat for Humanity, but there are many more ways to get involved.  Our volunteer opportunities don’t require special skills or construction experience, just a readiness to pitch in and help. Some Habitat volunteers build houses, while others work with families, reach out to sponsors or serve on a variety of planning committees.

So, join us by swinging a hammer, helping at the ReStore, working alongside Habitat Homebuyers, and in a host of other ways. Whether you are a student, retired, working a full-time job, or raising a family, we have opportunities for you to help in our mission!

Finally, we make sure we provide a safe environment for our volunteers. We ask that volunteers ensure their own safety and those around them by taking our FREE online safety class

(Unfortunately, at this time, we will not be scheduling BUILD SITE VOLUNTEERS until June 2018 as we prepare for the upcoming build season.) 

Types of Volunteer Opportunities

  • Individuals

    Join us, and work alongside others who've committed themselves to action.

  • Groups

    Nothing builds cohesion like building a Habitat home together. Manage an existing group or start a new one—our projects involve companies, service clubs, professional associations, church groups and many other kinds of organizations.

  • Youth Involvement

    We appreciate all of our volunteers and do our best to make sure everyone has a fantastic build day. Part of having a great build day is safety. Due to the hazards of construction work, there are some limitations on what volunteers under 18 may do.

  • Non-Construction Opportunities

    The Habitat for Humanity ReStore helps to support the mission of Habitat for Humanity by selling donated building materials and home furnishings to fund our homeownership program. ReStore volunteers support the vision of safe, decent and affordable housing for families in our neighborhood and around the world. Join us for a fun day of greeting customers, donation intake, cleaning and merchandising.
