Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization.

Please be advised that general volunteer opportunities on the construction site are currently unavailable. However, volunteers are welcome to serve in the Habitat Stores. Returning, registered volunteers can email volunteer@tpc-habitat.org for more information. New Store Volunteers are required to attend a virtual New Volunteer Orientation to get started. 

We welcome people from all walks of life to join us in building decent, affordable houses in partnership with future homeowner families, or to work a shift at the Habitat Store.

There is always room on our crew for a willing spirit, and no experience is necessary to help change lives*.

A few times a year, special volunteer opportunities crop up – like providing snacks or meals to volunteer groups on the build site or helping at one of our fundraising events. If you’d like more information about these kinds of volunteer activities, please contact Volunteer Services at volunteer@tpc-habitat.org.

Volunteer time commitments vary; some volunteers dedicate every day to Habitat (we call them “regulars”) and others spend just a few hours each month.

No matter the frequency, all volunteers contribute to the construction of decent, affordable homes.

*Please be aware that Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity is unable to sign off on court-ordered community service hours.

The Difference You Make

"I wouldn’t be able to give my kids a house if it wasn’t for Habitat and everyone who donated all the supplies and came out to help volunteer. I really am very thankful for the opportunity. I want to let everyone know, thank you very much."


Habitat Homeowner since 2014

We invite all first-time volunteers to attend a New Volunteer Orientation before committing to shift on a build site or in our stores. Visit our Event Calendar for details on the next session. There is no need to RSVP; just come as you are.
