Volunteers are the heart of Habitat for Humanity.

We welcome people from all walks of life to join us in our mission to make affordable housing a reality for hard-working families in our community. Whatever your experience, stage of life, skill-set, or passion, there is a place for you here.

Volunteer In Construction

While home construction and renovation isn’t the only way to serve at Habitat, it is a big part of what we do. Volunteering on a worksite is perfect for those who want to get their hands dirty – and it’s great for team-building, too!

Volunteer at ReStore

ReStore is a key part of how Habitat builds and renovates homes for those who need decent and affordable housing. ReStore is perfect for those who enjoy being creative with retail and helpful to customers. Volunteer at ReStore today.

Something for Everyone

There is no shortage of volunteer opportunities at Habitat, so whatever your passion and skill set, you can join us in impacting communities. Read on to learn about some of the ways you can make a big difference without picking up a hammer.

Become a construction volunteer, and you’ll see changes.

When you volunteer in construction, you’ll see changes in the house, changes in the surrounding neighborhood, and changes within yourself. If that sounds like a great way to spend a day, we’d love to talk with you about volunteering with Habitat.

We welcome individual volunteers, as well as groups of all kinds. Spending a day or even a few hours helping others can be a great team-building activity for a group from your workplace, church, family, club, or civic organization. And volunteering isn’t just good for others – as it turns out, it’s pretty healthy for you also.

You can impact your community without swinging a hammer.

If you’re eager to help at Habitat for Humanity but would rather not swing a hammer, we want you to know that there are still many places you can invest and more opportunities to serve – all of them vitally important to providing safe, stable housing for those who need it.
