We need your help!

We rely on our volunteers to help us give a hand up to hardworking families in Essex County and we hope you will join us to give back, make friends, have fun and make a difference in your community. 

Most people are aware of the need for volunteers to help at construction sites building affordable homes, but there are many other ways you can help as well, including at the Habitat ReStore.

Age requirements

Volunteers between the ages of 16 and 17 will be required to have a chaperone (21+) to volunteer at a build site and may be limited to what work they can complete on-site and what sites are available. For other volunteer opportunities, including at the ReStore, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator for availability and chaperone policy.
