With Essex County Habitat for Humanity, you have the opportunity to build in your community and/or work in our ReStore located in Lawrence.

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 fill in the form below. Interested in bringing a group – see options here.
  • Join us at the ReStore! Our Restore in Lawrence is 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.
