Why Volunteer?

Volunteers on RoofVolunteering is a great way to support Habitat’s mission, meet interesting people and learn new skills! Join with us to end poverty housing in our communities and create a world in which everyone has a decent place to live.

We especially need volunteers able to support us with a regular commitment of their time and skills, weekly or bi-weekly, on our construction sites, in the ReStore or in the office.

What Is There To Do?

Construction

You don’t need construction experience to volunteer with Habitat. We provide the training and all of the materials and tools needed to be an effective worker. Learn more about Construction Volunteers >>

Crew Leaders

Working closely with the construction manager, crew leaders guide, teach and engage small groups of unskilled or semi-skilled volunteers. Learn more about Becoming a Construction Crew Leader >>

ReStore

The ReStore sells donated new and used building supplies, appliances and furniture. Volunteers are needed to help with all aspects of running the store. Learn more about Volunteer Opportunities at our ReStore >>

Other Ways to Help

Don’t really want to do construction and not sure the ReStore is your thing? There are many ways you can support Habitat’s mission that don’t involve work boots or pricing labels! Learn more about the many other ways to Volunteer at Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts! >>

If you sign up for a volunteer shift, please make every effort to fulfill your commitment. Should a scheduling conflict occur preventing you from working your shift, either return to the scheduling calendar and delete your sign up or contact the office at (978) 348-2749. Letters verifying the hours completed can be picked up from the our office, 138 Great Road in Acton.

In addition to the Community Service Scheduling Form please print out and read the Community Service Guidelines and Agreement Form and sign it with the shift manager upon your arrival for service.
