What You Can Do

Lots of Ways to Help

Volunteering on a Habitat build site is special. There’s a magic that happens as people work together – not for a paycheck, but for the pay-off of helping the community become stronger through stable neighborhoods and self-reliant families. But here’s a closely held truth: houses are not built by volunteers alone.

Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity is powered by both volunteers and donors.

We depend on the generosity of donors like you to fund materials, equipment, the land on which we build, and the neighborhood revitalization work in the communities where we build.

Volunteers like you also help us build safe and affordable homes for families in our communities. Habitat volunteers cut lumber, drive nails, paint walls, lay sod, and support construction efforts in many other ways.

Whether you come out to swing a hammer, rally your service club or company to sponsor an event or a build, are a monthly donor or travel with Global Village to a Habitat build across the globe, you can make a difference.

Together, we create a kinder world – one where everyone has a decent place to call home.

We Welcome All Helping Hands

"We are patient folks… We will show you how to hold a hammer so you get the maximum power out of it. There’s room for everyone out there, whether they write a check or say a prayer or lift a hammer. There’s a role for everybody that wants to help. "
