volunteer time

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat Manitoba.

Join our 5,200 volunteers, by swinging a hammer, stocking shelves at ReStore or helping out at our fundraising events, and give a hand up to local, low-income families.

volunteer on a build site

Our Habitat homes are truly the homes that love built. They’re constructed almost entirely by caring volunteers, with the support of dedicated, skilled Habitat for Humanity Manitoba staff. It takes many caring hands to build a Habitat home.

Whether you’re a contractor or have never picked up a hammer in your life, we can use your help!
