Volunteer with Habitat

“Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve”

Without the efforts of our incredible Bay Area Habitat Volunteers we could not accomplish our mission of providing affordable housing to families in need!

Volunteering with us is a great way to give back to the community, meet new people, brush up on some skills, and be a part of something great!

You can explore some of our volunteer opportunities below and feel free to call our office with any questions about how to get started at (281) 337-3590.

 

Some volunteer opportunities may require that you complete a volunteer release form. Please complete either an Adult Waiver or Minor Waiver and return to BAHFH upon arriving at your volunteer opportunity.

Group Opportunities

Working with your group in a Habitat setting is a great way to build camaraderie. All skill levels welcome! While priority scheduling goes to the sponsors of the home, other groups are scheduled as space allows. We also have occasional non-construction projects for groups. Contact Us to sign up.

Red Hats:

This exciting opportunity is for dedicated individuals who would like to learn how to run a Habitat build site!  We are looking for volunteers with leadership or construction skills, or the willingness to learn!  This is a great way to meet people, learn new skills, and be an integral part of providing an affordable home to a family in need.

For more information about this opportunity please Contact Us  and get excited about making a difference!!

ReStore

We always need tons of help at our ReStore location!!  The store has been open since Spring of 2015 and sells everything from pre-owned appliances, and furniture, to jewelry, housewares, and more; all at great discount prices. The store is open to the public and all the proceeds go to supporting the mission of Bay Area Habitat for Humanity. Learn More >>

Administrative

While Habitat is most well known for volunteer-built homes, volunteers in the office play just as important a role. For those who would prefer an office environment, we need your help! Administrative volunteer opportunities can range from stuffing envelopes and database entry to specialized projects and restocking first aid kits. The office offers flexible scheduling opportunities generally Monday through Friday. Contact us to sign up.

Volunteer Committees

If you are interested in having  a direct impact on some of the big decisions and events at Bay Area Habitat, you may want to consider joining one of our committees.  Our various committees help to provide direct service to partner families as well as planning and organizing fundraisers and fun events like our annual Women Build 5K walk/run event!  For more information contact us or call the office at (281) 337-3590.
