Volunteers are the heart of Habitat for Humanity; from construction to ReStores, from special events to committees, volunteers are the center of our organization. With amazing volunteers like you, we can make long-lasting, positive impacts on our community.

Ways to Volunteer

Key Volunteers

Key Volunteers fulfill many roles, committing to at least six months of service (typically with at least one shift per week). In addition to training and leadership development opportunities, Key Volunteers receive invitations to volunteer celebration events, 25% discount in the ReStores and are eligible for merch and other volunteer incentive programs. Register now!

Volunteer Groups

Volunteering on a construction site offers groups a powerful opportunity to positively impact the community while having fun, learning new skills, bonding, and breaking a sweat! Businesses, student groups, faith-based groups, and more are welcomed to contact us to coordinate your build experience. Please send in your request to us by filling out this form!

Youth Volunteers

We welcome volunteers of all ages! For safety, no one under the age of 16 is allowed on an active construction site; certain build days may be open to those aged 16-17. Register now!

Opportunities include:

  •  Special projects for our future builders under   the age of 14
  •  Parent/guardian volunteer pairs for those 14-15
  •  Supervised shifts for those 16-17

Mandated Service

Court-ordered community service volunteers are welcome at Habitat East Polk, pending appropriate background checks and screening; court-ordered hours must be completed in our ReStores. Register now!
