With the help of thousands of volunteers from every skill level and background, we have provided over 500 families with a hand-up into home ownership! Volunteering with Habitat is an incredible experience: serving, learning, building, making friends, hearing stories – and much more.
You can help us continue to change lives and communities by volunteering your time at one of our current build projects or in our ReStores. Our build sites are open Tuesday to Saturday from January until mid-December (excluding holidays) and our Edmonton ReStores are open 9-5 Monday to Saturday.
