The Role of Volunteers

At Habitat, volunteers are the heart of our organization! Great volunteers assist in our home-building program every year. They build homes, raise funds, work in the offices, feed hungry volunteers, work at our ReStore and more. Our volunteers work alongside our homeowners and help them on their journey toward homeownership. Volunteer opportunities at Guadalupe Valley Habitat for Humanity include:

Habitat For Humanity

Build Homes

Home construction is the heart of Habitat. No previous experience is necessary to volunteer. Each home will have an experienced leader to instruct volunteers and all the tools and safety equipment necessary. We have opportunities on the work site most Tuesdays – Saturdays. We provide lunch for our volunteers on Saturdays only.

Habitat For Humanity

Lunch Crews

Help feed hungry volunteers. If you want to provide lunch to our volunteers you will provide the food, beverages and paper products for approximately 30 volunteers on any scheduled build day. Providing lunch for one house (30 volunteers) is worth 10 hours of community service (provided that is accepted by your organization or school).

Habitat For Humanity

Volunteer Services Assistant

This is an ideal position for volunteers who want to be on the worksite but for some reason choose not to participate in construction. This volunteer will help Volunteer Services staff host all the volunteers on site (ex: sign in, help with lunch, etc.).

Habitat For Humanity

Habitat Home Center

Volunteers can assist in our Habitat Home Center with pricing, stocking, loading/unloading trailers, assembling cabinets and more.  Must be 18 years or older.

Habitat For Humanity


Volunteers in the office assist with clerical stuff, data entry, filing, helping prepare for an event, etc.

NOTE: Court Appointed Community Service

All court-mandated community service hours MUST be completed at the Habitat Home Center. Construction site hours DO NOT count toward court-ordered hours. Call the store to sign up.
