volunteer time

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat GTA.

Join our almost 9,000 volunteers, by swinging a hammer, stocking shelves at ReStore or helping out at our fundraising events, and give a hand up to local, low-income families.

volunteer on a build site

Our Habitat homes are truly the homes that love built. They’re constructed almost entirely by caring volunteers, with the support of dedicated, skilled Habitat for Humanity GTA staff. It takes many caring hands to build a Habitat home.

Whether you’re a contractor or have never picked up a hammer in your life, we can use your help!


group volunteering

There are great opportunities for corporate groups, school students, and community and faith groups to volunteer with us on our build sites, in our ReStores and at our events and offices.

volunteering with ReStore

When you help out at Habitat ReStore, you help your community. ReStore proceeds cover the majority of  Habitat GTA’s operating costs, so your donations can go directly toward building affordable homes.

Choose to volunteer at one of our 12 local ReStores or join our ReStore home Deconstruction Team!
