Volunteer opportunity description

Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in Brooklyn!

Over three years ago, Superstorm Sandy flooded parts of coastal Brooklyn. Habitat for Humanity NYC's Critical Home Repair program has been helping families rebuild, but many Brooklyn homes are still in dire need of repair before their owners can return home.

Our volunteers are at the heart of everything we do and we need YOU to help us continue making an impact throughout NYC!

As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to:

  • Make your own schedule - volunteer as little or as much as you would like
  • Receive on-site training in construction - learn new skills or enhance the ones you already have
  • Meet other volunteers committed to affordable housing
  • Give back to your community in an amazing way
  • Make a positive difference in the lives of others


No construction experience is necessary -- just enthusiasm!
