Volunteers make Habitat happen

Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln is still seeking individuals and organizations to join us in our fight against substandard housing in the Lincoln Nebraska area. There are many ways to get involved, and we would love to have you as a part of our team. 

Individual Volunteer Opportunities 

We offer many different and diverse volunteer opportunities, from lending your hand in all aspects of the home building process on our construction site or stocking shelves in our ReStore. If you are interested in volunteering just once or serving with us regularly, we want to hear from you. Purchase Your Own Habitat Volunteer T-Shirt


Construction Volunteer- Our most requested volunteer opportunity at Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln is construction. Volunteers assist with the completion of all stages of the home construction, including: framing, hanging drywall, roofing, and painting. No previous construction skills are required, and volunteers are supervised by the HFHL construction manager, who also teach and instructs volunteers on the duties of the day.Learn More

Additionally, after you have completed the Volunteer Application you will need to watch a short video on what to expect on a Habitat for Humanity construction site. When you have completed the video and quiz, we will receive a confirmation and you will be eligible to volunteer on a Habitat construction site.
