Volunteers are the backbone of Habitat for Humanity, and without them our work would not be possible.
Habitat for Humanity relies on its volunteers to make magic happen. Whether they are building a home, stocking shelves at one of our ReStore locations or manning a table at one of our events, their contribution is priceless. At Habitat in Greater Vancouver, we have over 350 active volunteers. Now that's impressive.
Help us bring homeownership to more families, sooner. Join our roster of fabulous and committed volunteers today!
All first-time volunteers must complete a form to volunteer either at a build site, at the ReStores or at a Habitat event (see below). ReStore volunteers must attend one of our volunteer information sessions at any of our ReStore locations. Have questions? Contact us.

Build a Home
Through volunteer labour and donations of money and materials, we build safe, decent, and affordable houses alongside our partner families. Our next build site will be in Richmond. We hope to break ground in spring 2016. No skills required, but if you have some, even better!
Join our build team!
Through volunteer labour and donations of money we strategically disassemble and
kitchens, and bathrooms. We salvage and divert as much material from going to the landfill to be a competitive alternative to
demolition. All skill levels
All money raised through sales at our ReStores go directly to Habitat's operations costs. A social entreprise at work!
What can you do at the ReStore? Cashier and customer service, assist with merchandising or test/fix items (carpenters, electricians, cabinet makers, plumbers).
