Habitat for Humanity is volunteer-dependent organization; without great volunteers like you, we cannot accomplish our mission of providing safe and affordable housing for hard-working families in south central Minnesota.
The majority of our volunteer opportunities happen on our build sites or in the ReStore. We occasionally need volunteers to help with office work or special event help as well.
Build Site volunteers
We build multiple homes in our five county area each build season, and are always looking for volunteers with all kinds of skill sets to help us finish those homes.
As you can imagine, when we build is highly dependent on Minnesota weather. Our build season begins as soon as we are able to in the spring and lasts until we finish the homes, usually in late fall or early winter.
The homes we are building in this 2019 season are coming along very nicely, and we are nearing completion on them now. Because of that, we do not have any regularly scheduled construction volunteer opportunities at this time. However, if you believe you have some specialized skills that could help put the finishing touches on these homes, please fill out the interest form below and we will contact you to discuss some opportunities we may have! And please do come back next spring and summer to see what new opportunities we have at that time!
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a thrift store that specializes in home improvement items. Every item in our ReStore is donated by local businesses and individuals. They are a combination of new and used items, all sold at a reduced price, with all profits going to South Central MN Habitat to help build new homes for hard-working families.
Volunteers in the ReStore help in a variety of ways. Depending on your abilities and what our need is on the day you volunteer, you may help with intake and processing of donations, assisting customers shopping in the store, helping on the cash register, organizing and merchandising shelves, and helping with general cleaning of donations and the store.
If you would like to volunteer in the ReStore, please follow the link below for our volunteer calendar to view our schedule and find available opportunities.
All volunteers must have submitted a Liability Waiver within the past year. If you have not done so, please be sure to complete the waiver before your first volunteer shift. For legal reasons, you will not be able to volunteer until this has been completed. Please follow the link below to complete and submit the Liability Waiver.
