All levels of interest and experience welcome.

You don't need a hammer to participate in Habitat for Humanity! Our volunteers come with various levels of construction experience. If building isn't quite what you're looking for, you can volunteer in a Habitat office or ReStore.

 

Whether you are an experienced carpenter or have never picked up a hammer, Habitat has a place for you to give back to your community! Habitat affiliates are always on the lookout for help with making meals, providing office support, working at events, speaking to groups, being our contact at your church or organization, doing design work, helping on a committee or, of course, helping us build.

Signing up to volunteer with Habitat is easy! Contact the affiliate nearest you to get started. You can also complete the Volunteer Interest Form below, and your local affiliate will contact you for registration and scheduling. 

 

Group Volunteers

Volunteering is a wonderful way for groups and organizations to participate in Habitat for Humanity. If you would like to volunteer as part of a group build, please contact your local Habitat affiliate directly or complete the interest form.

However you choose to contribute, thank you for helping Habitat build decent, affordable housing and safer neighborhoods!

A campus chapter is a student-led, student-initiated organization on a high school or college campus that partners with their local Habitat affiliate.

Building

Campus chapters partner with Habitat affiliates to build and rehabilitate homes in partnership with Habitat homeowners. There are many ways a campus chapter can get involved with building:

Fundraising

Campus chapters raise funds to support the work of local Habitat affiliates, contributing both to their local affiliates and to Habitat for Humanity’s global mission. Chapters may contribute through house sponsorship, the tithe program (donations to a Habitat for Humanity affiliate outside of the United States), general donation to Habitat for Humanity International and Collegiate Challenge Global Village.

Advocating

Campus chapter leaders and members are advocates for affordable housing, helping increase awareness of the problem of substandard housing and calling for action to initiate change.

Act! Speak! Build! WeekWorld Habitat Day, and other campaigns through HFHI’s Advocacy department are all available to help chapters advocate for affordable housing.

Educating

Campus chapters educate others on their campuses and in their local communities about the mission and work of Habitat for Humanity. Many chapters offer speakers, do tabling and create other opportunities to inform their fellow students and members of their communities about the mission of Habitat.
