Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization. Volunteers work at the Restore, on construction, administration, fundraising, and everything in between!

Our success is directly tied to our ability to offer an exceptional volunteer experience. There are countless opportunities to serve in this ministry. Our staff works with several committees as well as individuals, groups, and homeowners who are earning sweat equity hours to keep this organization alive and growing. Volunteers come from different backgrounds, skill levels, and talents. We recognize that all volunteers are very special, and we work hard to make sure everyone does meaningful work.

Our goal is to match the right volunteer with the right task. Some volunteer opportunities include:

  • Become a construction crew leader; share your knowledge and help teach and supervise volunteers on construction projects throughout the build season.
  • Join a weekday build crew or specialty team and dedicate one day per week during our build season.
  • Help on specific projects (such as siding or roofing) depending on your skills and interests.
  • Join a Habitat committee: family selection/support, construction, public relations, special events, ReStore, volunteer services, finance, or fund development.

Adults of all ages are encouraged to use their existing skills or learn new ones. Youth volunteers between 16-17 years of age may participate on build sites, provided they are supervised by a responsible adult and work at ground level with age-appropriate tools (not power tools).
