Volunteer

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 build projects or in our Habitat ReStore. Our build sites are open Tuesday to Saturday from January until mid-December (excluding holidays) and our Habitat ReStores are open 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday to Saturday.
