Reasons to Volunteer

COVID-19 Update: After careful consideration, Habitat for Humanity Hamilton has decided to allow new and existing volunteers back to the Hamilton ReStore and our build sites, with new safety training and procedures in place. If you are a new volunteer, click here to learn more about our new safety measures and how you can register. If you are an existing volunteer, please click here to learn more about the changes we’ve made to make your volunteer experience safer in light of covid-19.

Volunteers are Habitat for Humanity Hamilton’s greatest resource. Volunteering with Habitat Hamilton on one of our build sites, at our ReStore, in our office, on one of our committees or on our Board of Directors, can be an extremely rewarding experience.

Here are just some of the reasons why people volunteer with us:

  • They find value in helping and building their community
  • They want to help Hamilton families
  • They meet new people
  • They have the opportunity to learn new skills
  • They get to teach & share their skills with others
  • They build & strengthen their resume
  • They attain references
  • They complete their mandatory high school hours
  • They make productive use of their spare time
  • They reduce stress
  • They become happier and healthier
  • They make a difference
  • They gain a new perspective
  • They gain a new sense of purpose
