Get involved

Volunteer on the construction site, with Home Preservation, or at the Habitat ReStore.


Join us to work on building and rehabilitating homes in partnership with hard-working low-income families.

Home Preservation & Rock the Block® events

Assist residents with needed repair, maintenance, weatherization, safety, accessibility, and beautification of their homes.

Schedule a group

Groups can vary in size (typically between five and 14). Just register below and you’ll be contacted by a real person with a custom link for you and your group to use. Sign up is easy and everyone will be able to sign the waiver online (keepin’ it green). Everyone who signs up online will get all the details about their build a week before.


Help prepare donations for display, assist customers, keep the store organized, and help with special events or trade shows!
