Volunteered before? Take the quick survey to let us know how we're doing!
Volunteering is a proud tradition at Houston Habitat. We invite volunteers from all around our community to partner with us to build or revitalize homes for hard-working, low-income families.
No matter what your interests; Houston Habitat has a volunteer opportunity that is perfect for you!
Please contact Volunteer Services, to discuss group or unlisted opportunities.
Build Site Volunteer
Volunteers who grab their hammers and build affordable housing alongside our construction staff and family partners are vital to helping realize Houston Habitat's vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Our build schedule is Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30am until 2pm. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to work on the build site, and must be at least 18 years of age to use power tools and to participate in roof work. Don’t worry if you are lack building experience; our staff is happy to teach! We are currently building in Harrel Park, located in northwest Houston.
