Over 450 families have been able to build and buy their first home, and many more have received critical home repairs, through Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis.  We could not accomplish our work without the dedication and support of thousands of volunteers who are willing to help local families achieve strength, self-reliance and stability through shelter.

There are many different ways to get involved with Memphis Habitat, from construction to fundraising to the ReStore, and more!  Volunteer opportunities are available for every skill level, and we hope that you will join us in our mission to eliminate poverty housing in our community.  General volunteer information is below, and click on "Individuals" or "Groups" to the right to learn more about how to get involved.


Last year more than 1,700 volunteers built new homes with Habitat.  These are our most popular volunteer opportunities, but they are also the hardest to come by.  The support of volunteers is imperative to keeping the cost of our homes affordable, but the majority of the volunteer slots are already assigned to our house-building partners long before the project begins.  Whenever extra volunteers are needed, those slots are filled by individuals and small groups.  No previous construction or building experience is necessary.


The mission of the ReStore is to:

  • Raise funds for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis
  • Provide fun and unique volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups
  • Keep usable materials out of our landfills

Last year more than 4,000 volunteers volunteered in the store.  Volunteers are critical to the success of the store, and we could not continue to operate without them.  We hope that you will join the team!

Read more about ReStore volunteer opportunities on the Memphis ReStore website.


You don't have to swing a hammer to help at Habitat.  We offer many opportunities for volunteers with different skill sets to assist various departments within Memphis Habitat with short-term and long-term projects.
