People in our community partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis to build or improve places they can call home. Habitat homebuyers help build their own homes alongside volunteers, like you, and pay an affordable mortgage. With your help, Habitat homebuyers achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. Memphis Habitat has multiple opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved.

Build Site Volunteer

As you consider volunteering with us, please take a look at our Construction Volunteer Handbook, as well as reading our Family Stories to get more acquainted with Memphis Habitat. Youth volunteers age 17 to 18 are allowed to volunteer on the build site, but cannot operate power tools. Children under the age of 17 are not allowed on the build site.

YOU can help create decent, affordable homebuying opportunities in our community by lending a hand on our homebuilding sites. We typically build March-May and August-November. Click below to see available build dates, other important details, and sign up today!


ReStore Volunteer

Not all volunteers swing a hammer or wield a paint brush! The Habitat for Humanity ReStore diverts tons of gently used homegoods and building materials from landfills by reselling them at discount prices to the general public. The ReStore depends on volunteers to sort and organize donations, stock shelves, assist customers, test appliances and electronics, and much more. Check out our ReStore Volunteer Handbook, as well as exploring our Memphis ReStore Website to learn more about volunteering and the store. There is no specific training necessary to get involved; volunteers go through a brief orientation online before their first day with us. ReStore volunteers must be 17 or older. Our normal ReStore volunteer opportunities are on Tuesdays through Saturdays at 10am - noon, noon - 2pm, or 2 - 4pm.

Anyone wishing to volunteer in the Memphis Habitat ReStore MUST watch a brief orientation session video first. The video link is available in the registration form as you complete your Volunteer Hub profile. Just watch the video, mark the check box that you watched the video, then you can sign yourself up for volunteer shifts. Click the button below to sign up today!
