Volunteer with Habitat


Do you like hands-on work? Meeting students from the U and getting off campus? We have the perfect opportunity for you!


House builds are volunteer events through our chapter where we team up with our local Twin Cities affiliate to help in the building of a Habitat homes in the area. At the site you will have the chance to work alongside other chapter members, site supervisors, home buyers, and Americorp members. The time you volunteer is very much appreciated since Habitat homes are built almost entirely by volunteers and future homeowners.


Builds are typically from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays, sign-ups are announced at general meetings, in emails, and on this website. We carpool to the build site, so not to worry if you don't have a car. If you have any questions, contact us at habitat@umn.edu


Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.


ReStores are independently owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. Proceeds are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter in local communities and around the world.
