If you want to learn more before you Volunteer with Habitat,
these are the areas where we use volunteers:

Construction and Repairs

Although this is one of the best known ways to volunteer with Habitat,  it is also the place where volunteer opportunities fill up the fastest. The Construction volunteer spots are first open to build sponsors, then to single day sponsor groups.  Finally, non-sponsor groups and individuals choose from the remaining spots.  Repairs, however, are a bit more flexible and they happen on an as-needed basis.

The ReStore

Volunteers help shoppers and donors with their purchases and donations on a daily basis at the ReStore.  Additionally, volunteers will maintain displays or log and tag new inventory to be sold, and on occasion, help with phone and email support.

Administrative

Although Habitat for Humanity can seemingly be synonymous with physical labor, there are plenty of daily tasks that require volunteer help at the office.  Volunteers help organize, file, input information to our databases and take phone calls.  If this is a better fit for you, please consider volunteering in this capacity.

Special Events

You may have heard about the various special events held annually to benefit HabitatMCTX.  Some of these events are put on as fund raisers by local businesses and organizations.  Others, however, are made possible by an ever-growing and always amazing, group of volunteers.  These local non-profit events put on by the Habitat for Humanity affiliate are among the best charity events in Montgomery County. The largest single annual fundraiser benefiting HabitatMCTX is the annual Gala held each spring since 2011!  Select Event Coordination on our sign-up form if you want to volunteer with habitat in this capacity.

Family Services and Support

Volunteering with Family Services offers you the chance to play an integral role in the process of qualifying and approving applicants for our program.

Once approved, a Family Support Volunteer is assigned to each family to encourage them throughout the process, keep them on track with their sweat equity hours, and to say a few words about the family at their home dedication.

You may volunteer with one or both of these committees!

Faith Relations, Churches and Faith-Based Groups

With the number of churches and faith-based groups that volunteer with us, it is helpful to have volunteers that are familiar with the way these groups express faith through volunteerism. Volunteering with Faith Relations consists of communicating with churches to secure more volunteers and increase attendance at events, coordinating special announcements about the work Habitat is doing and discussing possible fundraising or sponsorship opportunities.
