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.

Volunteer Opportunities

Construction Volunteers – Construction volunteers aid in the demolition, construction, repairs, and maintenance of our homes. You don’t need to have any experience to build a Habitat home! We provide the tools, training, and encouragement and have projects for all skill levels and interests!
ReStore Volunteers – Our ReStore helps fund the cricital home repairs projects. ReStore volunteers are responsible for collecting donations; testing, cleaning, and merchandising products; and loading customer purchases. This is a fast moving environment. Volunteers must be able to lift 50 lbs.

AmeriCorps – AmeriCorps members serve with us for a year, working with and leading volunteer teams during home builds and repairs.
Office & Committee Volunteers – You don’t have to lift a hammer to help! Office volunteers assist with administrative tasks, and committee members help behind the scenes with jobs such as event planning and fundraising.

Group Volunteering

We would love to host your youth group, company, church, or community group for a day of service! If your group of 3 or more would like to volunteer with us, please contact jaschliman@harrisburghabitat.org about our Team Builders opportunities. Please note, we are currently scheduling large groups for construction in early spring of 2023 due to construction timelines and we may not be able to accommodate specific date requests due to the availability of projects. For group scheduling, a minimum of 30 days notice is preferred to prepare adequate site staffing and supplies.
