Reasons to Volunteer

COVID-19 Update as of March 18, 2022:

As COVID-19 continues, heath and safety remains our priority. In advance of the Province removing mask mandates on Monday March 21st, please be advised that we will NOT be changing our COVID-19 policies and procedures for workers at this time. To review our current COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedure or COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy on your MyImpactPage please go to the My Profile tab and then click Files.

All staff and volunteers must continue to wear a mask or face shield during their shifts. In the ReStore, we will not be enforcing masking for shoppers and donors, so given this added risk we ask that everyone remain vigilant, sanitize, maintain six feet of distance and wear eye protection for your safety and that of the team.

Thanks in advance for your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Christi at christi@habitathamilton.ca or 905-560-6707 ext. 112.

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

We have a Volunteer Coordinator on staff to help you find the best fit that meets both your expertise and your passion. To learn more about how to get started, please contact us at 905-560-6707 ext. 112 or email us at volunteers@habitathamilton.ca.
