Another Year Older...and More Generous!

Presents, cake, balloons, friends, family - Who doesn't love their birthday? Every year we are lucky enough to be reminded of the lives we have touched and the people who care about us.

Andy Manaen2

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity offers up a wide range of volunteer opportunities and involves individuals and groups from all over the metro area.  Some volunteers have been around for over 15 years and keep coming back, while new volunteers join the Habitat family each day. What inspires people to volunteer with habitat can vary as much as our volunteers do, but most agree that it allows them to do something meaningful, and gives them a sense of satisfaction.

Volunteers are integrated in all parts of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.  From building and repairing homes in the Homebuilding and A Brush With Kindness programs to working directly with homebuyers in our Family Service department, there are numerous options for all sorts of volunteers. For those of you who are new to Habitat or have been around for years, we’ve always got new and exciting ways to be involved! Here are some volunteer opportunities we’d like to highlight.

Connie, office volunteer

We know how hard it is to commit to a full day of volunteering. Work + school + family + other obligations = a busy schedule. While we depend on our construction, A Brush with Kindness, and ReStore volunteers to get work done, we also depend on our committed office volunteers.
