Get Involved! 

Volunteers are the backbone of what we do at Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County and we could not do it without you! Experienced or maybe not so much, you are vital to the success of our mission through your spirit, enthusiasm, knowledge, and willingness to serve others. There are many opportunities where you, your friends, co-workers, and families can get involved in a truly rewarding experience like no other.

There are many more volunteer opportunities with Habitat than just ReStore or construction work.  Click here to learn about ways you can help select applying families interested in becoming Habitat home owners, or temporarily "adopting" a selected qualified Partner Family and advising them on the steps to home ownership. It's the "people" side of what Habitat does.
