Volunteer Info


Signups for our volunteer events open the week of that event. Make sure to check early in the week because signups fill up fast. Unfortunately, our events have a maximum capacity due to availability and safety reasons. If you are unable to sign up the first time, please try again and don't forget about all the other ways you can get involved with Habitat too! You can find a list of volunteer events here.

Build Days

Signups open at 9:00pm the Sunday before the build day. If for some reason it is not open at this time, please email habitat-volunteer@umich.edu. Transportation is provided from the Ginsberg Center but food is not provided. Please wear clothes you won't mind getting dirty.

Group Builds

Are you a campus student organization group interested in building with Habitat for Humanity? Please read the Group Volunteer Policies with information regarding reserving a build day and contacting our Volunteer Coordinators at habitat-volunteer@umich.edu.

Love building? You might also consider participating in Collegiate Challenge, a week-long Spring Break building experience!

Community Kitchens

Come serve the local homeless community! We will be preparing food at the local soup kitchens, the Delonis Center or with Food Gatherers, to serve to the homeless in Ann Arbor. Contact habitat-community@umich.edu for more details.

Habitat Restore

The Habitat ReStore is a 16,000 square foot warehouse that sells new and gently used building materials, furniture, appliances, and other products that are needed to update, maintain, and furnish people's homes. Some tasks including moving, organizing, loading, and clearing merchandise.

We look forward to working with you!
