Your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a place to put your talents to work.

From customer service to furniture repair, Habitat ReStores offer a multitude of volunteer opportunities geared toward individual interests and skills. By giving your time, you help your Habitat ReStore do more to support building projects that benefit families in your community and around the world.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers – both on construction sites and in Habitat ReStores – continuously help families in their local communities build a decent and affordable place to call home.
