Why Volunteer?

Be Part of the Solution

Our country and our communities are in the midst of an affordable housing crisis.  Individual and families need long term solutions. The home they build alongside volunteers is their key to a better tomorrow, a solid foundation on which to build their future.  With your help we are able to keep the homes we build affordable for the families who buy them. There are numerous ways you can get involved. Everything volunteers do-- from working on build sites or in the ReStore, to serving on committees or making lunches-- make it possible to serve our neighbors who are in need of safe, decent, affordable housing.

Be Part of a Community

Beyond building homes, we also build communities. Every Habitat for Humanity home that has ever been built happened because individuals, churches, schools, businesses, civic organizations, local government, and partner families came together to make someone’s dream of owning a home a reality. If you are interested in meeting new people, making new friends, and working with others to accomplish a common goal, then volunteering with Habitat for Humanity is for you.

Great Team Building Experience

Are you a business owner or a manager looking for a team building experience for your employees? Are you part of an athletic team, civic organization, Sunday school, or other group looking for a way to bring your group closer together? If so, then Habitat is the place for you! Groups of volunteers can work on our construction site, put on fundraisers, or work in our ReStore. All of these experiences will bring group members together as they work as one towards the goal of bettering the communities we call home. 

Great Learning Opportunity

In addition to being a great place to meet new people and have fun, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity can help you learn new skills. Individuals who volunteer on our construction sites quickly learn new construction skills which can help one obtain a job in the construction industry. Individuals who volunteer at our ReStore can gain valuable customer service experience which may help to land a job in retail, sales, or any other customer service field. If you would like to strengthen your organizational skills, you can volunteer to serve on one of our committees which help to organize and plan events. Every volunteer opportunity with Habitat is also an opportunity for your own self-improvement.
