Volunteer

Every volunteer makes a difference

Volunteers are integral to the success of Habitat for Humanity Niagara, and our greatest resource, and there are many benefits of joining Habitat Niagara’s volunteer crew such as:

  • Giving back to your community and changing the lives of families
  • Learning new skills and meeting new people
  • Mentoring and teaching other volunteers, including students and newcomers to Canada
  • Helping the environment by giving new life to gently used items
  • Enjoying our volunteer recognition program throughout the year
  • Having an opportunity to celebrate new homeowners at their home dedication ceremonies.

Join our volunteer crew and help us transform the lives of families through affordable homeownership.

We welcome volunteers with any skill level from all backgrounds and stages of life, providing a rewarding opportunity to give back to your community.

About our volunteers

Whether you’re helping customers at one of our Habitat ReStores, swinging a hammer to build a Habitat home or supporting one of our events, you’ll learn new skills, stay active, meet new people and enjoy our year-round volunteer recognition activities.

Your safety is a priority at Habitat Niagara, and all volunteers receive online and in-person safety training. We welcome volunteers aged 15+ for our ReStore and special event roles, and 16+ for our construction and salvage crews. CSA certified (green triangle patch) safety footwear is required for most roles. Ask us about loaner pairs if you need to borrow some of ours!
