Volunteering

They may not be next door, but they are your neighbours.  

We build simple, decent, affordable homes which we sell to our partner families in this community with an interest-free mortgage. In lieu of a financial down payment, our families give 250 hours, per adult, of their own time known as “sweat equity”. By volunteering with us, you’re helping members of your community get the key to their first home. By donating your time, you’re helping hard-working, low-income families in Waterloo Region fulfill their dreams of homeownership.  But to make this all possible, we need you, our volunteers.

Volunteers are at the heart of our success. We can’t do what we do without you. Each one of you brings your own set of skills, passion and personality that truly makes volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region feel like you’re part of something significant, something bigger! Whether you are putting up walls, whipping up food in our kitchen or loading an antique into a customer’s truck, you will be making an impact on the future of Waterloo Region by helping break the cycle of poverty in our community. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, skill levels and stages of life. You won’t believe how much fun you will have, how much you will learn and how good you will feel. Come change someone’s life; come build with us!
