Habit for Humanity Chicago
Formerly "Windy City Habitat for Humanity"

Individual Volunteers


Construction Volunteers
Construction volunteers help build the homes that our partner families purchase and build a life in. We build Thursday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., on our construction sites in the Chicago south side neighborhood, West Pullman. Habitat construction professionals lead volunteers on tasks each build day, so prior construction experience is welcome but not required. Learn more and register here or contact our volunteer team with any questions.

ReStore Volunteers
Volunteers at ReStore Chicago receive and process donations, answer guest questions, and assist with purchases all to help the ReStore raise funds for Habitat programs and to keep good, reusable materials in use. Volunteer at the ReStore Wednesday-Sunday by registering here, or contact ReStore Volunteer Coordinator, Nina Fuentes, for more information.

Committee Volunteers
Our operating committees help make decisions and implement activities that advance our mission of creating safe, affordable housing in Chicago. Click here to learn more about our committees and email Volunteer Programs Manager, Sean Wade, to get started!

Office Volunteers
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the Habitat operation in Chicago by volunteering at our 2201 S. Halsted office. Office volunteers assist with the day-to-day operations with the expected outcome that all key constituencies are supported and set up for success. Contact our volunteer team for information about specific opportunities.

Winter Warriors
When the temperature dips below freezing, we don't pack it in and call it a day. We layer up with long johns and keep swinging hammers. And we do it all to build a warmer future for deserving families. You can join us. Sign up now to become a Winter Warrior and keep our construction projects moving forward all while earning prizes along the way.

Women Build
Join a group of dynamic women committed to ending poverty housing through building and fundraising for this week-long build event. Recruit a team of friends or bring a group from work and pitch in to help build a family's future!

Community Service Volunteers
We welcome volunteers who need to track their community service hours. Please contact Volunteer Programs Manager, Sean Wade, to get started.

National Service Volunteers (AmeriCorps, JVC, Public Allies)
Long-term service members are critical to helping Habitat build the capacity to build more homes and serve more families in Chicago. From leading construction projects to running events to organizing our communications, National Service volunteers are moving our mission forward. Check back here for more information on how you can contribute a year of service to strengthening your Chicago community.

Please note: We ask all volunteers to attend a New Volunteer Orientation either before or within two months after their first volunteer day.
