TOGETHER WE build strength, stability, independence and shelter.

 As a Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County Volunteer you will not only make a difference with just one day’s work, you will help families and individuals from your community to move forward and achieve stability through our programming.

Volunteers Needed!

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. You can make a difference by helping hardworking families and individuals achieve self-reliance and stability, as well as improve the lives of low-income seniors, through our programs.

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.
