Volunteer with Habitat Omaha
How do you want to help?
Habitat is about more than swinging a hammer. We rely on the dedication and generosity of our wonderful volunteers to further our mission. In order to build quality, affordable homes in partnership with local families, we have a diverse set of opportunities available for volunteers from all walks of life.
Effective October 9, we are recruiting core volunteers primarily to help in our ReStores. We ask core volunteers to commit to 8+ hours of service a month, but what you do during your volunteer time is up to you! A few areas where we could use helping hands are: working with staff to process donations, assisting customers, and upcycling or DIY-ing furniture items. To learn more, please reach out to our Volunteer Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enhanced safety procedures are in place, and volunteers are asked to use caution and practice social distancing at all times.

Global Village Trips
COVID-19 Update: In response to the global pandemic, Habitat for Humanity International has suspended all Global Village builds through December 2020. This includes both trips we had planned in 2020. Do you love to travel but want to be more than a tourist? We invite you to join us on a Global Village trip where you will help build decent, affordable shelter in another country alongside members of the host community. A Global Village trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something truly meaningful, discover a new culture and new friends, and learn some new things about yourself, too. No construction experience is necessary. Find out about our upcoming trips by visiting the Global Village page. View Global Village opportunities now!
