Your health and safety are important to us

Like many of you, we at Houston Habitat are concerned about the Covid-19 virus. While taking precautions within our office we are also taking great care in engaging volunteers.

At this time, all volunteer activity is canceled until further notice.

We will update our volunteers when we are ready to welcome you back to the Houston Habitat build sites and ReStores.

If you have any concerns please feel free to reach out to

Thank you and stay safe!

Group & Corporate Volunteering

Volunteers play a huge role in helping build a Houston Habitat house. The most common way for corporate teams and groups to volunteer is by becoming a sponsor. As a benefit of sponsorship, groups are invited to volunteer on the new construction build site. Houston Habitat sponsors help us maintain the affordability of our new homes and also ensure we have volunteers to build alongside our future homeowners.

Groups enjoy that the volunteer experience serves as a leadership and team-building activity. No skills are required.

If your group or company is interested in volunteering please click the button below to fill in the group volunteer request form. You can also find information about the levels of sponsorship by downloading our sponsorship information packet.


Individual Volunteering

Each volunteer is essential to our mission to create affordable places for Houstonians to call home. While most of those who volunteer with us come to our organization through their company, we have many folks who are seeking opportunities to give back on their own. During the busiest of our build season, we will add Open Build days to the calendar. Open Builds are just that, open to any individual, age 16 or older, that would like to volunteer on the construction site. By visiting our VolunteerHub page you can see open opportunities.


Volunteer at the ReStores

Our ReStores, home improvement store and donation centers, open to the public, offer deep discounts on hardware, appliances, building materials and home decor. All profits help Houston Habitat build more homes!

Volunteers work with ReStore staff to create a great shopping experience for our customers by assisting in our warehouse and with merchandising and pricing, helping customers on the sales floor and much more!  Opportunities are generally available Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the minimum shift is four hours.  No experience necessary.


Volunteer on a Community Project

Part of Houston Habitat’s mission is to improve the quality of life of individuals in our communities.  It is a goal that we can’t accomplish without the help of volunteers!   Jobs might include tending to a community garden, or working at a Habitat booth at a neighborhood fair. No skills required.


Volunteering Internationally

Believing that we are all part of a global village, Houston Habitat supports the work of Habitat affiliates around the world, including Haiti, Nicaragua and Guatemala.  This support includes leading groups of volunteers on weeklong mission trips to build homes, communities and hope. Our tools are shovels, picks, pliers, our backs and our bare hands – no hammers! We also take the time to explore the country and its culture like locals, with locals.
