Habitat Needs Volunteers!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County. Without people like you, who share their time and talents with us, we would not be able to fulfill our mission of providing safe, affordable and decent housing in our community.

No experience is needed, just a desire to learn and work hard. Our onsite crew leads will teach you what you need to know. There are volunteer opportunities to suit all time and skill levels so please get in touch – we would love to hear from you!

Private individuals and Corporate teams are welcome.
