Who You Are

Whether you’re a high school or college student, working full-time, a parent, or enjoying retirement, we have a meaningful opportunity for you. As a volunteer, you’ll not only be helping others but also gaining enriching experiences and a firsthand understanding of the urgent need for affordable housing in our community.

No previous experience is required—just a willingness to contribute and make a positive impact. Please note that some volunteer opportunities have minimum age requirements to participate.

Ways to Get Involved


Building Hope

Grab a hammer and join us on a home build. Construction volunteers play a crucial role, working alongside experienced crew leaders in tasks like framing, painting, installations, finishing punch lists and more. Your hands-on contribution directly impacts families and creates a lasting legacy of positive change. Everyone is welcome and no prior construction experience is required. 

Please note these opportunities are only available during the active construction timeline of a home build. There are minimum age requirements to participate. 

Crew Leaders

Lead the Change

Volunteer crew leaders play a pivotal role in guiding fellow volunteers on both the Home Repair team and construction sites. You’ll provide essential leadership and training, steering each project toward successful completion. On home repair projects, crew leaders are responsible for much of the work with other volunteers serving as assistants.

We are always looking for crew leaders, especially for the home repair team.

Basic repair skills are necessary for the crew leader position. See the crew leader role description for more information.


Sustainable Impact

Work a shift at the ReStore, where every item sold supports our mission! Your time helps generate funds crucial for completing projects in our community. ReStore volunteers assist in receiving donations, customer service, working the register, pricing merchandising and processing incoming donations. Learn more about volunteering at the ReStore.


Celebrating Community

Blue Crabs and Blue Prints: Crack claws for a good cause! Dive into the spirit of giving back at our annual Blue Crabs fundraiser celebrated every summer. Be a part of the magic by volunteering for setup, during the event, or during cleanup. Your involvement is key to the success of this event and bringing the community together to support affordable housing.
