We believe that volunteers are vital to our success and are the rock of our organization. We are best served by providing the community with fulfilling opportunities to utilize their skills, time, and knowledge. 

We believe that community engagement: 

  • Improves our services and relationships with the community we serve.
  • Allows us to expand our capacity and enhance our services.
  • Provides us with the community's point of view and advocates for the services we provide.

Volunteers are a valued essential part of accomplishing our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. 

We have multiple ways to get involved whether as an individual or group. 

Due to COVID-19 we are currently not accepting new volunteers. 

Construction Volunteer
Volunteers assist with the building of all stages of the home including framing, hanging drywall, roofing, siding, trusses, grading and painting. No previous construction skills are required. We will provide all of the tools needed and our construction manager will teach and instruct you on the duties of the day. Current construction days are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm.(weather permitting) with a lunch break. We build throughout the community. For more information on what to expect, please visit our FAQ. 

ReStore Volunteer
Volunteers perform a variety of tasks including customer service, clean donated materials, stock shelves and prepare the sales floor, unload donated materials from vehicles and other duties. 

Special Events
Volunteers are needed throughout the year to assist with special events, projects and fundraisers. Event may include Good Life Halfsy, Scrub Day and our Community Builders Breakfast. Mark your calendar for the 2021 Good Life Halfsy on Sat., Oct. 23 and Sun., Oct. 24. Register to volunteer today! Every volunteer hour raises money for Habitat Lincoln.
