Individual Volunteers

We open new volunteer slots at the beginning of each month. If your preferred volunteer date is unavailable, take a look at volunteer opportunities at the ReStore.

We’re excited that you want to get involved with Habitat! Last year, over 7,000 volunteers donated their time and energy to Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East. Learn more below about how you can help make the dream of homeownership a reality for a local family.

As you prepare to volunteer, we recommend looking through our Construction Safety page, taking a look at our Volunteer FAQ, as well as reading our Family Stories to get more acquainted with Habitat.
