Building, repairing and painting houses with Habitat is an experience you’ll never forget. Our volunteer opportunities in house building and repair don’t require special skills or construction experience, just a readiness to pitch in and help. Other volunteer opportunities are available in our two ReStores and office.
Join us, and work alongside others who've committed themselves to action.
Nothing builds cohesion like building a Habitat home together. Manage an existing group or start a new one—our projects involve companies, service clubs, professional associations, church groups and many other kinds of organizations.
We appreciate all of our volunteers and do our best to make sure everyone has a fantastic build day. Part of having a great build day is safety. Due to the hazards of construction work, there are some limitations on what volunteers under 18 may do.
Minors 16–17 are allowed to participate in construction work, but are prohibited from using power tools; being on ladders, scaffolding, or walk boards more than 4’ higher than surrounding area; being on platforms or decks without hand or guard rails when more than 4’ above surrounding area; and being on a roof or participating in roofing. Minor groups participating on a build site must have adult supervision. All minors must complete a liability waiver and have it signed by their parent or guardian.
Ages 15 and Under
Minors 15 and under are not allowed on site unless it is to bring food and drinks during the lunch break when there is no active construction.
While some Habitat volunteers build, paint or repair houses, others help out in the ReStore Home Improvement Store or ReStore Rack. ReStore volunteers support the vision of safe, decent and affordable housing for families in our community. You can choose from a variety of rewarding opportunities to help in one of our ReStores. Join us for a fun day of greeting customers, donation intake, cleaning donations, or merchandising.
Other volunteers outside the ReStores work with families, help as a translator, or serve on a variety of planning committees.
