ReStore and Office Work

At Habitat, volunteerism comes in all shapes and sizes. Yes, people are needed for construction projects, but volunteers can serve and make a difference at the ReStore or in the office as well. We always have projects going on, so contact us today and see how you and your friends can help! Together, we can all help build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

Faith Builds

Since Habitat’s beginning in 1976, we have been built on a foundation of faith. Our mission is to build safe, affordable housing for people in the United States and around the world, and that comes from a desire to put God’s love into action.


We are God’s hands and feet, here to serve others and show them His love. The tangible experiences that Habitat provides allow you to engage those around you, live your faith and offer a unique opportunity to love your neighbor. You’ll also have the opportunity to work alongside future Habitat homeowners.


No experience is necessary to volunteer, and all faith groups are welcome. We will teach you everything you need to know on the build site, and there are a variety of tasks both indoors and outdoors to participate in that require all levels of skill and ability. We also can offer tailored experiences to fit your group such as a focus for students, singles or small groups.


Volunteering together provides a way for your faith group to have fun together while pursuing a common goal. You will be strengthening your community and empowering Habitat homeowners to build a better future for themselves. Your service will also deepen your ties to the neighborhoods around you and provide stability for the city you all share.


Whether your church or faith group travels 10 or 10,000 miles, we are certain that a difference will be made both in the lives of those you help as well as yourself. Click here to organize a faith build!


Team Builds

Thank you for your interest in corporate volunteering. Many businesses are now seeing the short- and long-term benefits of bringing employees outside the walls of the office, and into the volunteer space. Whether this is your first company volunteer event, or you’re seasoned pros, Habitat provides a fun, easy and engaging experience. We’re in the business of building safe, affordable housing, and would love to work with you.


Research has shown that employees prefer to work for companies invested in charitable causes, and volunteering is a terrific way to facilitate that need at a relatively low cost to you. It is especially important to the Millennial generation, born approximately 1980-2000, which is the second-largest outside of the Baby Boomers and is now entering the workforce in droves.
