We offer a wide range of local volunteering opportunities to help us deliver on our mission of building homes, building hope. We rely on our volunteers to help us operate our ReStore, a retail outlet that accepts donated goods and sells them to the public at heavily discounted prices, helping fund the building of our homes, and to help us build homes, giving a hand up to qualified, hard-working families in Essex County.
The minimum age is 16.
Any student groups volunteering (up to 5 students 16 and 17 years old) will be required to have an adult chaperone (21+) and may be limited to what work they can complete on-site.
Building on Faith
Essex County Habitat for Humanity and faith communities are natural partners. We offer these communities the opportunity to put their faith into action by building decent, affordable housing for people who don’t qualify for traditional mortgages.
