With Essex County Habitat for Humanity, you have the opportunity to build in your community and also in communities around the world.

Because of the support of volunteers like you, Essex County Habitat is able to improve and completely transform whole neighborhoods and communities. Through this transformation, families achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life.

Ways to help:

  • Join us on a building site! We require a full-day commitment (8:30 am-4:00 pm) and build on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays year-round. Simply select the date(s) below you’d like to join us. Interested in bringing a group – see options here. To see what days we are currently building, in Andover, Salisbury, and Wenham please visit our build day calendar.
  • Join us at a ReStore! We have two ReStores – one located in Peabody and another in Lawrence. Both stores are open Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 am-5:00 pm. We ask volunteers to stay a minimum of two hours, but that can be at any point throughout the day. Visit this link if you want to come volunteer at one of our ReStore’s. Simply type in the dates and times you’d like to join us in the textbox under your preferred location.
  • Lend us your special skills or knowledge! There are so many other ways to help the organization, like joining one of our committees, helping with marketing/social media, or supporting special events like our gala – you can view other ideas here. Simply type your area of interest into the comments box below.

Our volunteer coordinator will respond to you directly to confirm your volunteer activity and/or address any questions you may have. Or reach out to us first at volunteer@essexcountyhabitat.org (978) 681-8858
