COVID-19 Protocol forms for Volunteers:  Construction, Landscaping, and Upcycling     ReStore

With the help of volunteers from every skill level and background, we helped nearly 700 families build strength, stability, and independence through affordable home ownership! Volunteers make this happen! 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 volunteer sites. Our construction sites are not open to volunteers at the moment, but we hope that will change soon.
