An investment of your
time is an investment in Thurston County’s future.

Volunteers are the heart of South Puget Sound Habitat.

Volunteers join us for lots of reasons — to give back to the community they love, to build a stronger team, to learn new skills, or just to spend a little more time outdoors! What they all end up finding is that every hand can make a difference.

Best of all, no experience is necessary. Just bring your enthusiasm and we’ll teach you everything you need to know.

First time here?

No matter your passion, skillset, or level of experience, Habitat has a place for you.

Choose from opportunities such as:

Construction work

Volunteering on the build site is a fun, hands-on opportunity to build homes alongside future Habitat homeowners. No experience is required!

Habitat Store support

Build a home without even picking up a hammer! Habitat Stores generate funding in support of our mission, and they are run with the help of volunteers.

No hardhat required

Offer behind-the-scenes assistance with everything from fundraising and event planning to volunteer coordination, advocacy, and office support.

Come one, come all.

We can host groups of varying sizes, interests, ages, and abilities. Which of the following best describes your group?

Corporate team building

Do something that’s personally rewarding and share a unique bonding experience with your co-workers.

Faith groups

Your congregation can help us provide strength and stability to Habitat homeowners. All faiths are welcome!

Community + military groups

Civic, military, or school groups looking to give back to the community can make a real difference.

We’re committed to providing a safe and rewarding volunteer experience.
