With Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Harrisburg Area, you have the opportunity to transform your community and build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Each year, over 2,400 volunteers participate in our builds, making our mission to provide safe, affordable housing possible. Through building, volunteers help families achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance necessary to build a better life.

Our volunteers come from a variety of groups, including corporations, congregations, foundations, civic organizations, schools, and universities. Many individuals also volunteer their time with Habitat for Humanity.
