Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat for Humanity. Each year, thousands of volunteers donate their time to build and renovate houses and support ReStore operations. This donation of service saves an estimated $1 million in labor costs each year; this helps keep the purchase price of houses affordable for potential home buyers in need of quality, affordable housing.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Find out how you, your company, congregation, or civic group can serve.
